Murray also conducts meta-research evaluating bias in existing research. She has an ScD in epidemiology and MSc in biostatistics from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where she also did her postdoctoral fellowship in the Program on Causal Inference, an MPH in epidemiology from Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, and a BSc in biology from McGill University.
