Bio

After graduating from Oxford as a Doctor of Philosophy in Atomic and Laser Physics in 2010, Philip joined the Molecular Photonics Group as a visiting researcher before becoming a research associate of the group in 2011. His current research involves using Raman scattering for manipulating and articulating atomic and molecular systems, and controlling rotational and vibrational dynamics with lasers. He also enjoys sports like volleyball, golf, softball, and basketball.
