Michelle is a Professor and PLuS Alliance Fellow in the School of Psychology at The University of New South Wales, Sydney. She was awarded her PhD at UNSW in 2003 and completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. The broad goal of her research is to understand how repetitive thinking, such as rumination, maintains depression. Specifically, she conducts experimental and clinical studies that test questions about the consequences of rumination, particularly for memory, in individuals who are currently depressed, as well as those with a history of depression.
Michelle Moulds publishes her debut blog on a recent randomised controlled trial about the prevention of anxiety disorders and depression by targeting excessive worry, rumination and repetitive negative thinking in young adults.
