In addition to working at the Matenadaran, Tatevik is a PHD student in the same institution, the topic of her research being ‘Coffee and the history of the Armenian’s everyday life (from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 21st century)’ which has involved several events such as talks, performances and an exhibition in 2022.

Tatevik spent her UK partner placement at National Museums Northern Ireland.
