Nikita Bezrukov

Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in the Council of the Humanities and Program in Linguistics

Nikita Bezrukov (Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania, 2022) is a postdoctoral research associate and a lecturer in the program. His primary research interests lie at the intersection of syntactic and morphological theories, essentially the study of the building blocks of which words and sentences are composed — and how they get ordered, displaced, or copied by grammar. Language-wise, given his background in Near Eastern Studies and personal history, his research revolves around the languages of the Middle East and the post-Soviet space (in particular, at the intersection of those two areas).
