Biography

Dr. Brandon George is Assistant Professor in the Jefferson College of Population Health. Under the mentorship of Dr. Inmaculada Aban, he received his PhD in Biostatistics in 2014 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). His dissertation considered a separable parametric spatiotemporal correlation structure for the analysis of longitudinal imaging data, inspired by a clinical trial at UAB that examined left ventricular remodeling in patients with mitral regurgitation. After finishing his dissertation, Dr. George worked in the Office of Energetics at UAB under Dr. David Allison, where he worked in the field of obesity and nutrition research both assisting with in-house projects and attempting to improve the caliber of statistics in that field to enhance scientific rigor and reproducibility. He also received a BS and MS in biomedical engineering in 2009 from Washington University in St. Louis, where he specialized in artificial surfaces for blood-contacting devices.
