Chris Tassone

Dr. Tassone earned his PhD in Chemistry from UCLA . The original idea for our VR Learning Platform happened as Dr. Tassone was driving to teach a course on light-matter interaction and, as luck would have it, was listening to a podcast on virtual reality.  That coupled with his work utilizing artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery of new materials for energy applications, sparked Sama’s original product idea.
