Philip Angelides became a research assistant for the Centre on Global Health Security in February 2015, after working as project coordinator. His research at Chatham House focuses on global health governance and health in conflict areas, and most recently he has concentrated on the Ebola outbreak. Before joining Chatham House, Philip worked at Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz) on a joint project with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where he implemented a newly created antigen detection assay kit to identify areas in Brazil circulating West Nile virus. In 2012, Philip was a guest researcher in health geographics at the National Center for Environmental Health at the CDC, where he conducted geospatial analysis on toxic waste pollution and population health in the United States. From 2011-13, he was also a research associate with the Energy, Environment and Security Project, where he led on multiple projects focused on the health and environment nexus. 

Philip received his MSc from The London School of Economics and BA from The Colorado College.
