Ingrid Vilà-Giménez, Ph.D.


About Me

My specific line of research focuses on the multimodal integration of gesture, speech, and prosody, and its significant role in children's language development (specifically, in oral linguistic abilities). Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the effects of multimodal communication on learning-teaching processes, specifically on the development of children's cognitive and linguistic abilities.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Language Sciences (Cognitive Science & Linguistics) from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in 2020 (supervisor: Dr. Pilar Prieto). I hold an MA in Teacher Training (Universitat de Barcelona), specializing in Catalan Language and Literature, and an MA in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), specializing in Language Acquisition. 

I have recently earned a postdoctoral position (Margarita Salas; Funded by European Union-NextGenerationEU, Ministry of Universities and Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, through a call from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona)––starting in March 2022, at the Dept. of Subject-Specific Education, Universitat de Girona.

I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the Dept. of Subject-Specific Education at the Universitat de Girona. I am also a Research Member of the Prosodic Studies Group (GrEP) at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and a Collaborator Teacher at the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).
