She employs empirical and normative approaches to better understanding how to achieve fairness in resource allocation for vulnerable populations. Her research interests include disparities and biases in medical decision-making, the role of social networks in acute medical decision-making, and applications of social justice frameworks to inform global health and health policy.
Keren has studied disparities in aging and mental health, immigrant health, resource allocation for vulnerable populations, and disparities in transplantation, particularly the role of social networks.
