Brandon received his Ph.D. and S.M. degrees in from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011 and 2006 respectively, and his B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004, all in electrical engineering. After graduating from M.I.T. he worked for Enphase Energy as a senior design engineer, developing grid-tied power converters for distributed solar applications.

His research focuses on the design of electronic systems, with particular interest in power electronics and their control. This includes applications in smart-grids, photovoltaic systems, electric vehicles, and high-efficiency circuits.
