She is leading national and EU research in the development of the sustainable circular bioeconomy. Nationally, she is leading ‘ABC Economy’ to develop new sustainable value chains for the circular bioeconomy in Ireland by maximising value and minimising environmental impacts through cascading of biomass for production of biobased products and energy. On an EU level she is Coordinating the AgRefine ITN, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie 'education, training and skills development programme rolling out the next generation of Agri Biorefinery and Valorisation Bioeconomy leaders'.
A key element of Dr. Murphy's work is to carry out industry relevant research, participate in effective and relevant knowledge transfer, and foster links between industry and academia.
