Prof. Christine Imms


Christine (she/her) grew up on Nipaluna lands and currently lives on Wurundjeri lands. Christine pays her respects to the Custodians, Elders past, present and emerging. Christine is the Apex Australia Foundation Chair of Neurodevelopment and Disability at The University of Melbourne and The Royal Children’s Hospital. This is called the Apex Chair for short.

Christine is an occupational therapist, and her research focuses on participation – what helps, what makes it harder, and how to change what we do so that participation is better for everyone. Christine’s research is usually done in partnership with young people with disability and their families.

In 2021, Christine became Founding Director of Healthy Trajectories, a child and youth disability research hub on the Melbourne Children’s Campus. She is excited to bring together a team to work towards the vision of achieving best outcomes for children and youth with disability and their families. Read more about Christine’s research.

When she is not researching (and sometimes when she is) you can find Christine sailing with her family or doing renovations on her home.

Christine is sitting on her boat drinking a coffee and reading her e-book. She has just had a swim, so her hair is wet and she is happy. The background is of smooth water and a hill in the background. The sky is cloudy.
