Short bioMarianna Bolognesi is Senior Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna, Italy. Her research focuses on word meaning representation and multimodal communication. Currently she is working on the representation and processing of abstract concepts and on the role that metaphor and metonymy play in conceptual and categorical abstraction. She uses experimental methods that bridge psychological investigation with computational (corpus-driven) modelling.

Dr Bolognesi collaborates with the Creative Multilingualism group at the University of Oxford (2017-2019), and with the Metaphor Lab Amsterdam, where she worked with an EU Marie S. Curie fellowship (2015-2017) and currently coordinates the research area Metaphor and Multimodality.
