Christine Winter's work combines history of science and migration and identity studies. Her Matthew Flinders Fellowship research project Humaniarianism or Security? The New Global Health analyses through a regional focus Australia's role in health research, infrastructure development and humanitarian intervention.

The ARC Future Fellowship Mixed-Race German Diasporas in Southern Hemisphere Mandates: race science, policies and identity transformation analyses overlapping colonial rule and legacies through the lense of a history of individuals and families of multi-racial descent in the Global South from Australasia, New Guinea, Samoa to Namibia and South Africa.

Christine has published widely on Pacific-European relations during the late 19th and 20th century, and on the impact of WWI and WWII. Her work analyses a wide range of subjects in the Asia Pacific: the politics of Christian missions; how social scientists in Australasia were effected by war; ethnographic collecting; the development of race science; transnational politics of internment; colonial ideologies of loyalty.
