I will be preparing a research thesis in the area of big data, democracy and fundamental rights on the topic of the right to internet as a new human right and why there shall be a universal legal framework for digital rights protection.

In 2014-2015 I was a participant to a Master program on Curating Art at the Institute for Contemporary Arts in Yerevan. 

I hold a Master degree in European Studies from Regional Master Program in Human Rights and Democratization in the Caucasus implemented by the Global Campus of Human Rights in Yerevan State University and Taras Shevchenko National University of Kiev. The thesis was about the impact of cultural context on discriminative phenomenon; cultural determinants of nationalism and patriotism; racism and xenophobia. 

I hold a Master’s degree in European Interdisciplinary Studies from the College of Europe, Natolin Campus in Warsaw. My thesis within this program was on the topic of the analytical images of gender aspects: socio-economic and political factors of gender characteristics in Armenia.  

In 2019 within the Critical Legal Training Program at the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights I have also prepared a compact research on mapping the challenges, mechanisms and actors for LGBT rights litigation and advocacy within the EU Eastern neighborhood. It offered an overview of obstacles and risks for the litigation and advocacy actors, the legal remedies offered by national and international law,  social reactions and the international discourse on the topic. 

Before joining FRC and LSTS I worked within human rights advocacy and litigation projects in Armenia, Czech Republic and Germany.
