A younger Quentin,
with my first doctoral student Russ Miller, at the ICPP conference in
Shanty Creek, Michigan, 1984. Russ graduated from SUNY-Binghamton (now Binghamton University), all of my other PhD students graduated from U Michigan.
Quentin near death,
in a crowd of people from the Interface conference, 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 committee. The picture was taken inside,
but it's more exciting to be outside there.

Earth Systems Modeling Framework group
meeting of various federal agencies, November 2004.
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 have been more photogenic speakers. 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.
We should do a better one, but we probably won't unless they force us to.
Another side of Q, at a Tauber Kickoff dinner for student projects in 2017. For some reason this is the only close-up picture of anyone they posted. Most of the other pictures looked more instructive. The "neral Mills" sign was for 1/2 the people at the table, my group was going to a project at Microsoft.
Q keeps on going to the SC conference. These are the ``perennials'' that went to all of the SC conferences (they started in 1988). We were part of the SC 30th anniversary celebration. There are only 19 of us left, and I still keep going.
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
Several 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 (one of which has a small brown streak).
