About Me

Hi, I’m Saren Tasciyan or Taşçıyan or Թաշճեան. I am split between science and technology. I love switching between science and technology.

I studied immunology and infection biology. Currently, I am doing my PhD in cancer cell migration and biophysics at Institute of Science and Technology Austria. For my project I develop microfluidic devices and do lot’s of live cell imaging and image analysis (ImageJ macros, machine learning and R). As a side project I developed an application to analyze particle tracking data for end users.

In my free time, I make 3D designs, print them, put some electronics in it, make software, try to hack stuff. I have been learning about 3D printing since 6-7 years and electronics since 4-5 years. Besides, I like to play and extract meaning out of data. A long while ago I have made a software to catch lightnings. You can find those photos on my FlickR page.

During my university years, I started a business on the side to provide a variety of IT solutions mostly to science related entities. Feel free to contact me if you want to chat about that.

For this blog, I try to spend as little time as possible by using existing content. There are people out there much better at making videos and animations.
