Personal profile

Biographical details

MRC/NIHR Research Fellow

Dr. Rebecca Bendayan has a first degree in Psychology, Master Degrees in Research in Health Psychology and Research Methods and a PhD in Psychology which examined the robustness of statistical procedures for the analysis of longitudinal data. Before joining KCL in 2018, she was based at the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing at UCL where her research focused on examining the relationship between health and cognitive change in ageing populations and improving methods for the analysis of longitudinal data. She is interested in finding early predictors of cognitive decline in older adults and besides her UK based projects, she has ongoing collaborations with this purpose in the US, Israel, Spain and Chile.

Dr. Bendayan is currently leading two projects which use longitudinal clinical health records to address the challenge of multimorbidity in our health care system. She is particularly interested in understanding which health conditions are more likely to co-exist, how they develop over the life course and how they relate to cognitive ageing.


Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2016.
