In 1996, Dr. Hoover joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California, San Diego, as an Assistant Project Scientist and Visiting Lecturer. In 1998, he received the department's Honorary Graduate Teaching Award. In 1999, he joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Clemson University, where he is currently a Professor. Dr. Hoover is a senior Member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and an associate editor for the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics. He has co-founded two start-up companies based on his research.
Dr. Hoover's research focuses on tracking systems. Tracking 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.
