dr. gabriella rundblad (phd)
Dr. Gabriella Rundblad is Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at King's College London, specializing in the interface between language, cognition and behavior. She has been PI on three recent projects investigating communication about drinking water. Her research explores authority, factuality, and impersonalisation in different types of lay/professional health discourse, including government/non-government websites and media reports on immunisation, as well as the discourse of medical research articles. Work on health communication has allowed her to develop a new text analysis approach, Cognitive Discourse Analysis, which draws upon Critical Discourse Analysis, Systemic Functional Linguistics and Frame Semantics. Dr Rundblad also studies the language and cognitive development of children/adults with/without language disorders.
Dr. Rundblad joined the ViVI Scientific Think Tank in 2009 providing expertise in linguistics and science communication.
