Dr Charlotte Tye
Chief Investigator

King's College London

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at King’s College London. I graduated in Experimental Psychology from the University of Bristol and completed doctoral and postdoctoral training at King’s College London. My research focuses on characterising development in young children with rare neurogenetic conditions and epilepsy and identifying infant precursors of later emerging neurodevelopmental conditions, such as autism and ADHD. I have received prestigious fellowships from the Tuberous Sclerosis Association, Epilepsy Research UK and Autistica, and was awarded the Vicky H Whittemore prize in 2015 and the British Academy of Childhood Disability/Castang Foundation Fellowship in 2019.

Dolapo Adegboye
Postdoctoral Researcher

King's College London

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Psychology at King’s College London. I completed doctoral training and began postdoctoral training at Cardiff University, and I now continue my postdoctoral training as a member of the BEE study research team. My research focuses on the complexities of emotional development in children displaying early signs of neurodevelopmental problems. I am also interested in statistical techniques grounded in dynamic methods for assessing emotion regulation.

Natasha Lindsay
PhD Student

King's College London

I am a first year PhD student researching developmental trajectories in infants with early-onset epilepsy within the BEE Study at King's College London. I completed my undergraduate Psychology (BSc) degree at the University of Sussex and currently volunteer part time at Shout crisis line supporting mental health of those in crisis. My interest in rare neurodevelopmental disorders stemmed from my placement year at University College London's Institute of Child Health, where I was an Honorary Research Assistant collecting data on neurodevelopment in children with rare genetic disorders.

Chlöe Sanders
Honorary Research Assistant

King's College London

I am a 3rd-year placement student working on the BEE study at King’s College London.  I am currently working towards a BSc in Psychology and hope to continue to focus on epilepsy and other developmental disorders in the future.  I have a deep interest in generating research that has the ability to improve the lives of those living with such disorders, as well as the statistics involved in analysing the results drawn from these studies.
