Georg Hahn, Ph.D.


Hi there! Following my one-year EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship at the Statistics Department of Imperial College London (2016-17), and a research associate position in the StatScale project (2017-19), I am currently a research associate at Harvard University working on statistics methodology in the Biostatistics Department of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Please have a look at my personal website for my complete CV, a complete list of my publications, as well as an overview of my research interests.

Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
