Team Lead | Principal – Hydrogeologist | Brisbane

Keith Phillipson

Keith specialises in the use of groundwater models to assess and manage the impacts of a broad range of developments on groundwater and surface water resources, with more than 25 years’ experience working in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Europe. In particular, Keith has undertaken, overseen and peer reviewed a wide variety of modelling studies focused on assessing the cumulative impacts of large-scale water supply, coal mining and coal seam gas developments.

As a team lead at AGE, Keith enjoys working with so many talented hydrogeologists “who realise that work isn’t everything.” His favourite quote is: “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius.

Outside of work, Keith loves nothing more than shooting some pool and the breeze at the same time. One particular story includes his accomplishment of eating six mars bars in 30 minutes! His hope for the future is for England to win both the World Cup (on penalties) and the Ashes.
