Tristan Tayag has been a member of the faculty of the Department of Engineering at Texas Christian University since August 1997. He received his BSEE and MSE degrees from the Johns Hopkins University in 1986 and 1987, respectively. Tristan spent a year and a half as an associate engineer at the Applied Physics Laboratory before earning the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Virginia in 1991. From 1991 to 1997, Tristan worked at the Army Research Laboratory where he served as team leader of the Integrated Optics Team.

TCU-HSC partnership leads to new bone-cutting machine
The project got off the ground after Roby and TCU electrical engineering professor Tristan Tayag joined forces. Tayag said thousands of sets of bones lie on shelves waiting to be processed. “The bottleneck is the cleaning and extracting of the bone sample,” Tayag said. “It is time-consuming because it is done manually.”...
Non-uniform projection angle processing in computed tomographyInterferometry XVI: Applications
Simo, Y., & Tayag, T. J.
2012 In this paper, we present a novel approach for the collection of computed tomography data. Non-uniform increments in projection angle may be used to reduce data acquisition time with minimal reduction in the accuracy of the reconstructed profile. The key is to exploit those projection angles which correspond to regions where the object contains few high spatial frequency components. This technique is applicable to optical phase computed tomography, as well as X-ray computed tomography. We present simulation results on intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery.
Primary tendon sheath enlargement and reconstruction in zone 2: an in vitro biomechanical study on tendon gliding resistanceThe Journal of Hand Surgery
Bunata, R. E., Kosmopoulos, V., Simmons, S., Tayag, T. J., Roso, M., & Carlson, H.
2009 To investigate our hypothesis that primary pulley enlargement and repair using an extensor retinaculum graft will reduce tendon repair gliding resistance. The benefit of pulley enlargement has been tested in experimental animals, but its effect on gliding resistance in vitro using human fingers is not known.
