Phillip is an economist with expertise in strategic management, data analytics, demand pricing and information disclosure. His work on pricing has examined how firms can implement practical strategies for consumer-specific pricing. Much of this work has been in the context of event ticketing, making Phillip a leading expert on ticket pricing. Phillip has also written a series of papers on information disclosure as a policy tool. For example, in one study he shows that restaurant hygiene grade cards caused a 20% decrease in the number of people admitted to hospital with food-related illnesses. Another study shows that consumers at Starbucks reduced calorie purchases by 6% due to calorie posting on the menus. Phillip was awarded the UCLA Anderson MBA best teacher in 2013 and he is an experienced executive education teacher, particularly in custom programs for client companies. Phillip also provides data analytics consulting services.
