Ignore him. Though, this must be hard as no matter what anyone can suggest you do, inevitably you always strive for your parents approval (at least I do). Any chance he could be acting out due to jealously?
Just try to focus on all you've achieved! Write it on some paper in big writing! Focus on the positives from the people giving you compliments (even write these down)! Celebrate your achievements.

"I am so sorry I am a disappointment to you, despite having two degrees. To save you from shame, I shall disassociate myself from you and deny you are my father. No birthday cards, no Xmas cards, no presents and no acknowledgement of you in public." then flounce.
Completely send him to Coventry. You can neither hear him nor see him.
After a few weeks of ignoring him, you mum will be bending his ear big time.
I kept that up for months as a teenager - it drove my parents mental.
