He is the Director of Psychiatric Neuromodulation at the Providence VA Medical Center. He is affiliated with the Center for Neurorestoration and Neurotechnology at the Providence VA Medical Center, the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and with Butler Hospital.

Dr. Philip’s lab uses cutting edge technology to understand and treat serious psychiatric disorders, such as major depressive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He uses noninvasive brain stimulation and functional neuroimaging towards these goals, with method that include transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS, sTMS, TBS, etc.), low-current stimulation (tDCS), network-based resting state functional connectivity and virtual reality.
