Professor Michelle Moulds is an ARC Australian Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist in the School of Psychology at The University of New South Wales, Sydney. She was awarded her PhD at UNSW in 2003 and then completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, where she was involved in a project that examined the role of rumination in the maintenance of depression. Her current research is comprised of experimental and clinical studies that examine the interplay of cognitive processes and memory in clinical disorders, with a focus on depression. Her work is driven by a translational approach and aims to draw on the results of basic science experiments to inform the development of evidence-based interventions. She has published over 100 papers/chapters to date, and is currently supported by funding from the ARC and NHMRC. She received the 2010 NSW Young Tall Poppy of the Year Award from the Australian Institute of Policy and Science, and in 2012 was a finalist and runner-up in the Scopus Young Researcher of the Year Award (Humanities and Social Sciences).
