Philip is a Senior Lecturer in Animation specialising in digital effects for cinema. His primary area of expertise is Houdini, a 3D animation and effects software programme which he has been teaching for over 10 years. As a result, Bournemouth University is now formally recognised by Side Effects Software as a Houdini-Certified School.

He was recently interviewed for BBC Radio Solent about BU graduates and their success contributing to Oscar-nominated films.
