Dr. Muireann Irish

Dr. Muireann Irish is a Research Fellow (ARC DECRA) in the School of Psychology at the University of New South Wales, with a longstanding interest in how humans remember the past and imagine the future.

Her research program explores how these uniquely human processes, break down in neurodegenerative disorders, and the neural substrates of these impairments.

To date, Muireann has clarified the core cognitive and neural mechanisms that must be functional to support a range of sophisticated forms of thinking, including memory, imagination, and daydreaming.

She has received a number of prestigious awards including a L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellowship (2015), a NSW Young Tall Poppy Science Award (2014), and the Laird Cermak Award for Outstanding Research in Memory from the International Neuropsychological Society (2013).
