Elena Kulkova is a scientific assistant in the Potsdam Embodied Cognition Group (PECoG). Having completed her specialist’s degree in linguistics (Tambov State University, Russia) and a M.Sc. degree in psychology (National Research University Higher School of Economics, Russia), she is currently working on her Ph.D. on the embodiment of non-literal language processing. The project is aimed at exploring the embodied aspects of figurative language and at distinguishing the mechanisms of idiomatic and metaphoric processing with the use of such techniques as the grip-force sensor and TMS.
