Phillip joined CSIRO in 1993 with the establishment of the Parker Centre, primarily to develop techniques for flocculant and aggregate characterization. He also contributed to the AMIRA P266 “Improving Thickener Technology” series of projects, later taking leadership of flocculation studies and then becoming overall Research Coordinator. He led the final stage of the project (P266G), as well as being responsible for technology transfer.

Phillip has conducted thickening appraisals and workshops around the world, also creating an online thickener self-appraisal tool for project sponsors that draws heavily upon the extensive P266 computational modelling of feedwell flocculation.
