Dr Keren Papier
Keren Papier is a Nutritional Epidemiologist whose research examines the burden and major modifiable risk factors (diet, lifestyle) of malnutrition and nutrition-related diseases in different populations. Her international research settings include: Thailand, Philippines, Australia, and the UK.
At the Cancer Epidemiology Unit (CEU), Keren's work forms part of the Wellcome Trust funded LEAP Project (Livestock, Environment and People). For this work, she examines the relationship between animal sourced foods (particularly meat and dairy) and health outcomes. To do this, Keren uses large-scale epidemiological cohort data such as EPIC-Oxford, UK Biobank and the Million Women Study.
In addition to her role at the CEU, Keren is Postdoctoral Associate at St Cross College.
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.
