Nancy Pistrang is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology. She has a BA from Yale and a PhD from UCLA. She has been at UCL for over 20 years, initially working as a part-time lecturer combined with working part-time as a NHS clinical psychologist.

Her research examines the communication of psychological help and support across a range of populations and settings, both professional and non-professional, for example, peer support, self-help groups, online support groups, doctor-patient communication and client-therapist interaction. Together with Prof Chris Barker, with whom she has had a longstanding collaboration, she runs the Psychological Helping and Support Research Group. She has published articles and chapters on the methodology of research in clinical psychology and related areas, particularly on qualitative methods, and is an author of Research Methods in Clinical Psychology (with Nancy Pistrang and Robert Elliott).
