Keren Papier is a Nutritional Epidemiologist whose research aims are to better understand the role of diet and lifestyle in chronic disease epidemiology, particularly cardio-metabolic diseases, to quantify the population burden of NCDs in under-resourced countries, and to provide epidemiological evidence for the primary prevention of chronic diseases and the improvement of public health.
Keren’s current research with the LEAP Project (Livestock, Environment and People) examines the relationship between animal sourced foods (particularly meat and dairy) and health outcomes. To do this, Keren is using large-scale prospective cohort data from EPIC-Oxford and UK Biobank.
Before joining the Cancer Epidemiology Unit, Keren received her PhD in Epidemiology from the Australian National University, for which she assessed the incidence and risk factors of emerging type 2 diabetes mellitus in Thailand. She also holds a Bachelor of Public Health Nutrition (Honours I) from Griffith University.
