Flip Phillips is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Neuroscience Program at Skidmore College. At one point or other in his life, he has been a marching band instructor, a graphic artist, a computer programmer, a medical imaging researcher, a cyclist/rower/cross country skier, a professional musician and an animation scientist at Pixar Animation Studios. His academic credentials come via The Ohio State University (mail-order branch) and he has taught, lectured, and done research at various institutions all over the world (many times with permission). At Skidmore, Professor Phillips teaches and researches the modeling of brain function, three-dimensional shape perception, and space perception. If he were a tree, Dr. Phillips would most likely be cut down and turned into a bookshelf.
