  • Author of the international bestseller "The Memory Illusion", published in 2016 by Penguin Random House and translated into 16 languages and "Making Evil", coming in 2018

  • Dr. Shaw is a research associate at University College London

  • Her work is regularly featured on television, radio, podcasts, in print, and online


  • "Shaw’s debut book is a spryly paced, fun, sometimes frightening exploration of how we remember – and why everyone remembers things that never truly happened . . . Her book is equal parts breezy guide through the recent lessons we’ve learned about memory, and a loving tribute to the sometimes eccentric researchers who toiled away in the laboratory to uncover them . . . Shaw's quirky charm enlivens the book throughout."
