Bilor KurghinyanAdjunct Lecturer

Bilor is involved in the research and product development projects of the Precision Sensors & Instrumentation, LLC (PSI Ltd. ‒ www.psi.am), the Armenian company, which is developing and producing sensors based on a new principle of operation technology (SFCO‒sensors), invented by the company’s founder. He was also involved in research projects of the center on “Superconductivity & Sci. Instrumentation” founded in 2007, in frames of the NFSAT-CRDF project (award # UCEP 07/07, 2007‒ 2010).He has investigated and explained weakly expressed behavior of the normal to Super-Conductive (SC) phase transition. He also took active participation in designing of the new test-instrument (“magnetic-field” probe) for “visualization” of super-fine superconductive properties of thin plate-like high-temperature SC materials (so-called FFLO effect) by the use of the new principle of operation above SFCO measurement technology.

Bilor is the team leader of Armenia in International Physics Olympiads since 2012 (to date) and prepares the national team and students of Special Physics-Mathematical (Phys-Math) School for physics Olympiads. He has been a jury member of International Experimental Physics Olympiad in 2018 and 2019.

Nejdeh Hovanessian
Nejdeh Hovanessian

Nejdeh prefers to call himself a ‘designpreneur’, a term he has coined to define the overlap between ‘design’ and ‘entrepreneurship’ spheres.

His basic professional background is in industrial design and he has more than ten years of experience as a designer. His master’s studies gradually drove him toward the field of design management, innovation, entrepreneurship and branding. That is why he sees his main professional role as a ‘design, branding and innovation catalyst’. It is about 14 years that he is focused on ‘design thinking’ as a researcher, practitioner and educator. Up to now, he has initiated a few entrepreneurial ventures as a co-founder and strategist. Also, he has extensive experience as a brand strategy consultant.

Currently, he is the Assistant Director of Entrepreneurship and Product Innovation Center (EPIC) at the American University of Armenia. He also teaches innovation, entrepreneurship and startup culture at AUA. He is the National Coordinator of Entrepreneurship World Cup in Armenia.

Vicken Derderian is an Architect and Fashion Designer, born and raised in Pasadena, CA. Vicken received his Bachelor of Architecture in from Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC). He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Fashion from the Academy of Art University, in San Francisco, CA. His unique approach to design is the synthesis of architecture and fashion. The fusion of these two disciplines allows him to explore the topography and the dynamics of the human body in motion which is channeled through the construction of the garment and its movement through the environment. This exploration allows him to design items that express the world around us through shape, form, and space. He has shown his collections at MBFW NY, and LAFW. Multiple publications have reviewed his collections.
