As a Scientist in Residence, Gabriella Vigliocco, PhD, has collaborated with scientists at Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) on a variety of research projects focused on language and cognition. Dr. Vigliocco was recently invited to discuss her research, her career, and her life in an episode of the People Behind the Science podcast.
During the interview Dr. Vigliocco spoke with podcast host Marie McNeely, PhD, about an exciting ongoing study in which she is characterizing language development and language comprehension in face-to-face social interactions. We also learned more about her scientific journey, starting in a small village in rural Italy where she grew up. Dr. Vigliocco also shared her passion for cooking, reading science fiction and fantasy books, and other interests outside of science.
Dr. Vigliocco is currently Professor of Psychology and Language Sciences in the Department of Experimental Psychology at University College London where she directs the Cognition and Language Laboratory.
