A younger Quentin,
with doctoral student Russ Miller, at the ICPP conference in
Shanty Creek, Michigan, 1984.
Quentin near death,
in a crowd of people from Interface 2000, at
Lafayette #1 Cemetery, New Orleans (I'm on the right-hand side).
This picture was taken in April,
2000 by our tour guide, Fred Hatfield.
Quentin waiting for a handout
at a CSEG picnic on 19 May 2000. The picture
was taken by Joonyoung Kim, a CSE graduate student. The person on
my right is Robert Oehmke, one of my doctoral students.
at the Executive Committee, Scientific
Computing Division of NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Modeling),
merged with a User Forum, 24 April 2003. I was the computer
scientist on the Executive Committee. The picture was taken inside,
but it's more exciting to be outside there.

A suitable Quentin,
at the CSE@50 celebration, celebrating the 50th anniversary of a computer science-related department at U Michigan.
The event was May 7-9, 2008.
The picture includes Julia Lipman and Farnam Jahanian, who was chair of the CSE department.
He insisted on the picture to prove that I owned a suit.
An oblivious Quentin, with a more
alert Christiane Jablonowski, taken at our tutorial Parallel Computing
101, at the Supercomputing conference November 11, 2007.
It was taken by attendee Ed Burnette.
A picture taken at SC13 was used on the SC14 and SC15 Program home pages. You think there would be more photogenic speakers and I'm sure they'll get tired of it eventually. Unfortunately Christiane only appears in a few pixels along the right edge.
Here's a promotional video for the tutorial - they made us do it so we hurriedly put one together.
How my university sees me: here is my faculty photo from
1984. They eventually decided that I didn't
look sufficiently professional, so this
is their 2007 version.
Then they decided that was too formal, and definitely not what computer scientists look like, so this is their
Parallel Quentin: this video is an overview of parallel computing given at UM Cyberinfrastructure Days in 2011. It wasn't produced very well, so it isn't all that useful. I hope it was better in person.
A few years ago, as I was walking through an airport, a stranger came up and said that
I must be a mathematician, so just assume I look like what I am -- a
6 foot tall white male professor with a beard,
rapidly disappearing hair, and blue eyes.
