His research interests include the architecture and urbanism of ancient Greek and Roman cities, Roman wall-painting, and the digital humanities. His book on the Civil Basilica of Aphrodisias is published by Reichert, Wiesbaden (Aphrodisias VII, 2016). Other publications include an article on Roman incised architectural drawings, in Aphrodisias Papers 5 (JRA, Suppl. Series 103, 2016), an article on the perspective systems used in Roman Second Style wall-painting (AJA 115, 2011), a chapter on the Civil Basilica of Aphrodisias in Aphrodisias Papers 4 (JRA Suppl. 70, 2008), and a chapter on an early Classical painted tomb at Sardis in Love for Lydia, Sardis Report 4 (Harvard Univ.

Welch's The Roman Amphitheatre from its Origins to the Colosseum (Cambridge, 2007), and have appeared in other articles and exhibitions. In 2010 Phil received a large collaborative grant to study the karez water systems of southern Afghanistan using remotely gathered data and GIS.
