Dr. Francesca Lami

Research Fellow

Francesca (she/her) grew up in Italy and now finds her home on the land of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people. She holds a Master’s degree in clinical psychology from the University of Pisa and completed her PhD with the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne. For several years, she worked at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, engaging in research projects focusing on young people with neurofibromatosis type 1 and autism, as well as adolescents who are gender diverse.

Francesca possesses a genuine drive to build knowledge that can improve children’s health and quality of life. She joined the Healthy Trajectories Hub as a Research Fellow because she was eager to contribute to research that is co-designed, interdisciplinary, and impactful. She hopes to integrate her clinical and research expertise to undertake studies that can inform clinical practice and policymaking.

In her free time, Francesca enjoys walking among plenty of ferns and eucalyptus trees. She is also very passionate about learning about other cultures. When she cannot visit a foreign place, she simulates traveling experiences by experimenting with new food and listening to live music around Melbourne.
