Hello there. My name is Oleksandr (or "Sasha"), I recently started discovering the Fediverse.

I am a medical doctor by education, currently working on a PhD project in molecular medicine in Austria. I work half wet lab (cell and molecular biology) and half dry lab (bioinformatics, omics data analysis); my research focus is chronic liver diseases.

Outside work, I enjoy learning something new about computers and reading about space research.

Happy to be here & connect with you.

@xander_p hi there, welcome to this corner of the internet!
Don't hesitate to ask if you need help figuring stuff out or finding people to follow :)


Hi 👋 and a warm welcome to #fediverse !

How did you discover the Fediverse?



So once I searched how to solve some problem with an R package functioning, and found a blog post of a person who indicated Mastodon among social media contacts.
A few weeks later, I recalled about that and started googling - what is Mastodon. And here I am :)

Ideas of a privacy-respectful decentralized media inspired me, so I decided to give it a try.

Nice to have you with us! New here? Start with following some tags and people! Go check out public stream on your server to find some. Keep adding more people and tags, you can always unfollow something you don't want later.
