Armen’s doctorate was in nationalism and ethnic identity. He was founding director of the Armenian Genocide Research Unit at Macquarie University, Sydney, and taught Social Ethics and Social Change at Macquarie Christian Studies Institute and overseas in Armenia.

He has developed internship programs for university students and young leaders in both countries. He is a founding co-director of the Australian chapter of one of Armenia’s largest NGOs, Mission Armenia (www.missionarmenia.com). He is now on staff with The Australian Navigators (www.navigators.org.au), developing their ‘ministry at the margins’ with a focus on a public housing estate in Macquarie Park, Sydney, where he serves with his Salvation Army church.
