Dr Natalie Marchant profile picture
  • Associate Professor
  • Mental Health of Older People
  • Division of Psychiatry
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I am an Associate Professor based in the Division of Psychiatry at University College London. I received my undergraduate degree from Williams College USA, and my MSc and PhD in Psychology at Sussex University UK under supervision of Professor Jenny Rusted. I then conducted post-doctoral research in neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley USA under supervision of Professor Bill Jagust.  I joined UCL in 2016 holding a Senior Research Fellowship from the Alzheimer’s Society, and became an Associate Professor in 2021. 

Research Summary

My primary research interest is in understanding how the way we think and feel affects how we age. This includes engaging in repetitive negative thinking or self-reflection, and experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression. I am currently an investigator on several UK- and internationally-funded projects examining how lifestyle and mental health increase risk or resilience to neurodegeneration, cognitive impairment and dementia; and how non-pharmacologic interventions may improve wellbeing and reduce dementia risk. This includes leading a multi-national clinical trial of a psychological intervention in older adults with subjective cognitive decline.  Please see my lab website for more information about these projects and my research. 

Teaching Summary

I was formerly the co-convener and now teach on the “Advanced Treatment and Management of Dementia” module of the MSc courses in the Division of Psychiatry, UCL.

I currently supervise 2-4 MSc students per year for their final dissertations, am first supervisor to 2 PhD students, and subsidiary supervisor to 2 PhD students. I received the UCL Student Choice Award for Outstanding Research Supervision in 2021. 

I am currently accepting new PhD students. Interested students should contact me with an idea of their interests and project proposal, and an indication of potential funding support.
