I am committed to advancing studies of Armenian language, literature, and culture. My scholarly productions include literary analyses of a trilogy on the Armenian genocide as well as translations of Western Armenian-language materials for English-speaking researchers. I am currently developing an open educational resource textbook for Western Armenian, funded by a grant from Michigan State University’s Center for Language Teaching Advancement.
I have taught courses in Western Armenian language and Armenian culture at Harvard, Harvard Extension, and the University of Texas at Austin. My personal and professional history has made me a devoted translator, scholar, and promoter of the Armenian language.
