From 2006 to 2010 she was a member of the editorial board of Armenian Folia Anglistika (International Journal of English Studies).

The fields of her scholarly interest are Cognitive Linguistics, Stylistics, Text Interpretation, and Semantics.
The more recent interest in combining artistic forms with research grew from a drawing/painting hobby, with the first attempt to include installations in the monograph on literary allusion (in Armenian) in 2014.
