Dr Keren Papier
Keren Papier is a Nutritional Epidemiologist whose research primarily focuses on the role of diet and lifestyle in chronic disease epidemiology. Keren’s overall goal is to identify sustainable dietary patterns that prevent poor health outcomes. Her special interests include epidemiological methods of assessing diet and disease relationships and global health. Keren’s current research with the LEAP Project (Livestock, Environment and People) examines the relationship between animal sourced foods 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.
