I am a Master of Architecture candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Born and raised in Armenia, I received a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Architecture from Bennington College, where I served as a trustee. As an undergraduate student, I have worked at SHoP Architects, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and BKSK Architects. While pursuing my masters degree at MIT, I’ve held multiple teaching fellowships for both graduate and undergraduate courses, and research assistantships at WOJR, Matter Design, and CLA. My current research is concerned with the recovery of Armenian stone masonry techniques -- one of many skill based building practices that has become obsolete as a byproduct of standardization.
