Brandon J George, Ph.D.

Statistician II
Full CV


I joined the Office of Energetics in November of 2014. Currently, I am assisting other investigators on statistical issues in nutrition- and obesity-related research.

Under the mentorship of Dr. Inmaculada Aban, I received my PhD in Biostatistics in 2014 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). My 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. I also received a B.S. and M.S. in biomedical engineering in 2009 from Washington University in St. Louis, where I specialized in artificial surfaces for blood-contacting devices.
