My name is Nyssa Bulkes, and I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Arizona, in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory, working with Dr. Vicky Lai.

My research interests include psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and second language acquisition, particularly in the domains of figurative and formulaic language, prediction, and visual word recognition. My primary methodologies are event-related potentials (ERPs) and eye-tracking.
