George received his B.A. in astronomy-physics from the University of Virginia in 1999. After spending a year at the Indiana University School of Music, George earned his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 2006. He then held a postdoc at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, California.
George's research is focused on the large-scale evolution of matter in the early universe. His interests include cosmic reionization - the process by which the first stars and galaxies ionized the intergalactic medium - the early enrichment of the intergalactic medium with heavy elements, and faint populations of high-redshift galaxies.
