Lusine Mkrtchyan

My research interests are Soft Computing, Fuzzy Logic and Risk Analysis.

My hobbies are:

  • Chess - I prefer blitz to have a good excuse that i lost because of time :)
  • Chinese Chess and Shogi - I learned them recently and I like it even more than European chess
  • Backgammon - I can be a champion of Italy as no one plays here :)
  • Japanese crosswords - I can spend days to solve Japanese crosswords
  • Postcard Collection - I especially like painted postcards. Now I started to collect postcards with national ethnic features in them
  • Reading - Everyone actually can read but ... My favorite poet is P. Sevak
  • Traveling - I still hope that one day we could travel in other planets as easy as we travel now in other cities...

My favorite painter is Martiros Saryan. Without having a clue about my country, just by his paintings one can love Armenia.

My favorite composers are Arno Babajanyan and Eric Satie.

My favorite views are Mountain Ararat from Yerevan in the evening and the walls of Lucca in the early morning...

My dream job is running a school for children with physical disabilities.

My favorite quotation is this one by Aristotle :

It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision to which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.
