Jacob P. Kimball received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to that he earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Brigham Young University. During his graduate studies he was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and industry partners in multiple noninvasive cardiovascular sensing projects. Jacob’s general research interests include designing clinically relevant medical devices and systems and translating them from the lab to multiple patient care settings. A strong focus of his research is developing new algorithms and technologies for evaluating patient blood volume decompensation status or compensatory reserve. He enjoys helping students at all levels learn, apply and develop engineering methods and tools to address problems in healthcare. Outside of work, Jacob enjoys playing a variety of sports, reading and watching good stories, making and listening to music, eating all types of food, walking his dogs, and spending time with his family.
