Personal profile

Research profile

Anthropologist specialized in political anthropology, multi-sited fieldwork and qualitative methods. My scientific work has focused on youth activism in Armenian diasporic spaces delving into issues of identity politics in relation to moving conflicts (moving through affective registers, and across temporal and spatial orders). Recently, I have undertaken preliminary research into the field of environmental activism studying formations that strives toward a profound transformation of politics and economy across scales; and pushing for an ethical reconfiguration of human-nature relations.
