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.

To do this, Keren is using large-scale prospective cohort data from EPIC-Oxford and UK Biobank.
