Prior to joining the Cyberinfrastructure Technology Integration, CITI, group at Clemson University, Dr. von Oehsen was employed by the Center for Advanced Engineering Fibers and Films, an NSF funded engineering research center, where he oversaw the research and development of finite element software for modeling polymer processes.  He has worked as a computational scientist at Clemson for over ten years.

As Director of Computational Science for CITI, Dr. von Oehsen is responsible for directing and implementing High Performance Computing (cluster) and High Throughput Computing (Condor) application support and research.

Dr. von Oehsen is a TeraGrid Campus Champion. Academic institutions that require HPC resources for their scientific research are sometimes unaware of the "free" resources made available by NSF via the TeraGrid. A campus champion is the local source of knowledge about TeraGrid high-performance computing resources, the services offered and can provide opportunities to engage faculty and staff.

Research Interests
Dr. von Oehsen's interests are in high performance computing, high throughput computing, mathematical modeling, parallel programming, distributed grids, hardware architecture, compilers for distributed computing on hybrid archetectures, and visualization.
