Dr. Murphy-Eberenz’s clinical work and interest primarily focusses on the evaluation and assessment of learning disorders and ADHD in adults, mood disorders and psychotic disorders. She has interests specific to the epidemiology and classifications of psychological illness as well as diagnostic formulation and understanding the heterogeneity of clinical presentations within diagnostic categories. She is also interested in understanding treatment utilization patterns among patients in clinical settings.

Outside of work, Dr. Murphy-Eberenz is a sports fan who cannot get enough of baseball and continues to manage a fantasy football team in the face of multiple losing seasons. She also enjoys being outdoors, playing golf and traveling.
