Christopher Oehmen received his B.A. in Physics and Mathematics from Saint Louis University in 1995. He earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Memphis/University of Tennessee, HSC Joint Program in 1999 and 2003, respectively. Since then, Chris has been at PNNL as a Research Scientist, previously serving as the Lead for the Asymmetric Resilient Cybersecurity Initiative. His research is built on a foundation of high-performance computing applications in biology, with special emphasis on how these biological approaches can be used as a new paradigm for other fields such as cybersecurity. He has led multiple efforts focused on adaptive, resilient cyber systems inspired in part by complex biological systems. His resilience and active defence work rely on a foundational application of biological principles for survivability and regeneration with special emphasis on facilitating human control of complex systems.
