Meet the core team...

Dr. Charlotte Tye

I am a postdoctoral research fellow leading the EDiTS Study, supported by a Junior Fellowship award from the Tuberous Sclerosis Association. I studied Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol before coming to the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience in 2008. I completed a PhD in developmental cognitive neuroscience aiming to identify brain-based markers of autism and attention deficit hyperacticity disorder (ADHD) in genetically sensitive designs, at the MRC Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, King's College London. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, I have been exploring the pathways leading to intellectual disability and developmental disorders, like autism and ADHD, in TSC. My Fellowship project aims to characterise early development in infants with TSC, ultimately to design and target more specific treatment and intervention strategies to babies who are "at risk" for poor developmental outcome. I work in collaboration with the Birkbeck Babylab/Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development at Birkbeck, University of London.

I am an honorary research assistant working part-time on the EDiTs Study at the Social Genetic and Development Psychiatry Centre, King's College London. Alongside this, I am studying Graduate Medicine at St. George's, University of London after having completed my undergraduate BSc Psychology degree at Loughborough University. I aim to specialise in Pediatrics upon completion of my medical degree.

Kathryn Robertson


I am an honorary research assistant working on the EDiTS and CoIN studies at the Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience at King's College London.

Natasha Lindsay


I am a research assistant working on the EDiTS Study at the Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience, King's College London. I completed my undergraduate Psychology (BSc) degree at the University of Sussex. Alongside this, I am a Shout crisis line volunteer and have a keen interest in rare genetic disorders and neurodevelopment. My aim is to apply to a PhD programme researching atypical child development.
