How Arpi is building a better working world

I fuel my passion for uncovering fraud schemes in order to promote integrity, transparency and accountability in the market. My goal is to prevent fraud losses that could harm investors, customers and businesses. 

When I am not fighting fraud, I serve as the cochair of the Associate Board of New York Sun Works, a nonprofit that teaches New York students about the science of sustainability.
