📈 Immersive Visualization Producer, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Sasha Samochina is an Immersive Visualization Producer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. She joined the team at JPL after working in New York in the fields of video and web development and in Chicago where she was a Media Producer at The Field Museum of Natural History. After dreaming up words, GIFs and videos for @NASAJPL, @MarsCuriosity and other JPL social media channels, she was inspired to explore the world of 360 video and VR and AR. Through Sasha’s visualization skills, she pioneered the very first 360° video release on social media for NASA. Currently, she works in the Ops Lab at JPL producing immersive experiences to help scientists and engineers complete their daily work and helping NASA to make space more accessible to everyone. She loves all things digital, animal, sound-emitting, cosmic and views the world through VR-colored glasses.
