About Me


I’m Dr Christine Grové.

A researcher, educator and an Educational and Developmental Psychologist. Currently, I am a Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University.


Inclusion is at the heart of my work. I am committed to equality, diversity and youth mental health and well-being.

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. I grew up in Brisbane, Australia and have lived in Washington D.C.,  Durban, and Melbourne, where I currently live with my husband, Andrew, and our trained therapy dog, Bronson the Labradoodle.

I am the co-founder and director of the Educational Psychology Research Team at Monash University which explores the impact of vulnerability experienced by children, adolescents and families in schools and the community.
