Who is Dr. Hoover?Adam Hoover is a professor and associate chair in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research is in tracking systems which can refer to physical problems, such as locating where things are in the world, and also signal problems, such as identifying the relative health of an individual's blood pressure over time. Image and signal processing, mHealth, state space modeling, filtering, and embedded computing form the background of his work. His group works with many types of sensors and often builds embedded systems that prototype novel tracking ideas. He has graduated 10 PhD students and 38 MS students as a major advisor. Adam is also an Associate Editor for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.
How Dr. Hoover’s research is transforming health care
Adam is working in mHealth, the practice of medicine and public health supported by mobile devices. His specific expertise is in tools that support the measurement of energy intake. New tools are needed for studies in obesity and related co-morbidities such as diabetes and for treatment of obesity and eating disorders. His tools help participants increase compliance with taking measurements, decrease underestimation bias, and provide a low-cost and low-burden alternative to traditional methods.
