Christopher Tassone

Staff Scientist, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

At Santa Clara University Chrisopher began his research career studying novel synthesis techniques of nanostructured materials in collaboration with NASA Ames Research Center.  His graduate research at UCLA was focused on utilizing self-assembly to engineer material organizing from the nano to the mesoscale in order to develop materials with targeted properties.  In 2011 he joined SLAC as a postdoctoral fellow, jointly advised by Michael F. Toney, Ph.D. and Professor Michael McGehee,  to study process-structure relationships in organic semiconductors.  In 2013 he joined SLAC as a staff scientist where he currently runs a research group focused on combining informatics, in-situ measurements and chemistry to accelerate the discovery and deployment of new materials.  Focusing on applications in catalysis, photovoltaics and additive manufacturing.    

Christopher Tassone received his B.S. in Chemistry from Santa Clara University, and his Ph.D. from the University of California Los Angeles.
