Dr. Phillips completed a PhD in physics at the University of Sydney in 2009, and completed a postdoc in neurology in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School. He has developed mathematical models and health-based metrics that are widely used in the sleep and circadian fields, including the Sleep Regularity Index (SRI). He has also made fundamental discoveries about the circadian system, including interindividual differences in sensitivity to light. His work is closely integrated with experiments, so that model predictions can be tested and so that additional insights can be gleaned from data.
