Chris Taylor's accomplishments
speak for themselves but often have poor grammar. Here is a
grammatically corrected version of what they say. Chris Taylor
received a Ph.D. in the department formerly known as the department
of electrical engineering at Purdue University. He is now an Associate
Professor and Master of Science in Engineering program director in the
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at
the Milwaukee School of Engineering where he is currently enjoying his
thirty-ninth trip around the sun.
He consumed four tons of cow's milk and counted to 125,000 by ones
all before his twenty-fifth birthday.
Chris was not homecoming king in high school or college, and he did not
graduate at the top of his high school class; however, his social security
number has only three prime factors.
He was not involved with any political movements in the 1960's and has never
been in a rock band, but he has held hands with an orangutan.
Chris has not been convicted of grand theft auto in the last six and a
half years and has never been convicted of a violent crime.
He has moved over twenty times living in four countries and
three states but contends that he is not running from anything or anyone.
In fact, his knees can't really take much running anyway.
He has ridden more elephants than horses and hopes to one day swim across
the Arctic Ocean.

Here's the stuff that gets the most visitors
--When people ask me what my hobbies are usually tell them I don't have
any time for hobbies at this stage of my life. However, if I did,
photography would be one of them. I've had a few opportunities to visit
a number of National parks in the US and Canada. This section contains
some of what my camera saw.
- Unix is a Four
Letter Word... and Vi is a Two Letter Abbreviation
--A Unix manual I wrote a few years ago. This section is responsible for
most of the email I get from strangers.
Spring 2005 Quarter Courses
Here is course information for the courses that I am teaching this quarter.
- Here is a list of
taught previous quarters at MSOE.
I'd like to think that most of the stuff in my webpages is entertaining to
someone, but the stuff in this section doesn't seem to serve any other purpose.
- Essays--Silly things I have
written over the past number years for no apparent reason.
- In grad school, I kept track of interesting things my
I've tried to make this interesting for those familar with electrical
engineering research as well as those who are not. Give it a chance.
- In graduate school I passed the time by studying human vision
and image quality in the
Electronic Imaging Systems
- Human Visual System Model for Image
Quality Assessment--This was the focus of my Ph.D.
research. I have included a non-technical overview of the research
project as well as links to the technical details. I've tried to write
the overview at a level that people without an electrical engineering
degree can understand. Please let me know what you think about it.
- Red/White Color Images--This is a
bit of a research diversion. I haven't done much with this except
simulate an experiment that shows that it is possible to get lots of
different colors (including yellow, green, brown, etc.) from Red and
- Dot Model Based Halftoning--This
was my first real research project. Another student at Purdue has
taken over this project.
- Color monitor calibration
--Project report from my first research project. (In pdf format)
- Research Papers--Access to all
my research papers and talks that I have online.
More About Me
- I married Catherine on
December 28, 1996.
- Newsletters--Reading my annual
newsletters may help you understand why some people think I'm not mean
(statistically speaking, i.e., average).
- While at Purdue, I was involved with the Graduate chapter of

American Society of

HKN Web server at
graduate school may help you understand what I think about cheating.

More About You
- Do you have any comments on my homepage or the stuff within?
- Are you thinking about coming to MSOE
for a degree or two?
- Have you found any typos or invalid links in my homepage?
If so, let me know.
- Links with a larger font size receive the most
- next to a link
indicates new material has been added recently or the link itself is
new... but it should be pretty obvious from the page style, this page
hasn't really been updated in over a decade.
