Georges Monette

York University


Georges Monette is Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at York University. He received his Ph.D. in Statistics at the University of Toronto. Since 1985 he has been involved with the work of the Statistical Consulting Service at York University serving academic clients in almost every discipline. For the past 18 years most of his work has involved hierarchical and longitudinal models, including teaching graduate courses, giving workshops and series of seminars. In the spring of 2000, he organized the first Summer Programme in Data Analysis (SPIDA) at York University funded by Statistics Canada and SSHRC to provide intensive training in hierarchical and longitudinal data analysis to researchers working with longitudinal surveys conducted by Statistics Canada. He taught the portion of the program on longitudinal models from 2000 to 2003 and from 2009 to 2012.

One of his special interest is using longitudinal models to study recovery trajectories of patients with brain injuries. In teaching he strives to convey complex theoretical concepts with simple but correct visual representations that allow students with little mathematical background to understand and apply advanced methods correctly.
