Dr Karen Murphy holds a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry and is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian. She has over 20 years’ experience working in the nutrition science field. She leads the Mediterranean dietary patterns group at the University of South Australia and uses an evidence-based approach to explore the effect of whole diet and lifestyle patterns on chronic disease risk.

Specifically her research investigates the impact of the Mediterranean dietary pattern on cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome as well as mental health and wellbeing and risk of dementia. She is a recognized leader in research in nutrition, chronic disease and ageing and as a result collaborates with national and international researchers and the food industry. She offers expertise in clinical trials, assessment of dietary intake, measures of body composition, cardiovascular health, cognitive performance and biochemical analyses.
