MS Class of 2018


My extensive academic background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering and a Ph.D. degree in Technical Sciences (majoring in Engineering). Now, as a Fulbright program grantee, I am studying at the New York University’s Center for Urban Science and Progress to acquire a Master’s degree in Applied Urban Sciences and Informatics.

My professional background includes founding a startup company and raising $100,000 seed investment, working as a Product Manager in PicsArt – a leading photo editing app with more than four hundred million users, and working as an assistant professor at the Architectural university of Yerevan teaching courses to both Bachelor and Master level students on energy efficiency, architecture, construction and urban planning, as well as supervising their diploma projects.

I am deeply interested in Big data, open data, Smart cities, as well as AI, deep learning, machine learning and neural networks.
