Phillip received his doctorate from the University of Marburg and subsequently worked at the University of South Australia. His research focuses on the electrophysiology of language. He is particularly interested in using modern statistical and signal processing methods to conduct previously impossible experiments, such as 'naturalistic' auditory stimulation, and to analyze multimodal data jointly, such as eye-tracking and EEG whether co-registered or collected separately.
He is a contributor to the following software:
MixedModels.jl: the next generation of the popular lme4 package
MNE-Python: M/EEG analysis software
simr: R package for simulation-based power analyses of mixed-effects models
DDTBOX: MATLAB toolbox for multivariate pattern analysis (MVPA) of EEG data
