View Philip's extended research profile.


Philip joined Federation University Australia on its founding in January 2014. Previously he has held positions at Monash University, Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Cambridge. He has researched and written in the field of age and the labour market for almost 30 years. He leads a major program of research on ageing workforces and has a strong national and international reputation in the field. His high professional standing stems from his strong publication record, the influence of his work on national and international public policy, frequent invited addresses to major national and international conferences and symposia, membership of national and international committees concerned with the implications of workforce ageing, his leading role in Australian and international research groups, and work with public bodies both in Australia and overseas.
