Dr. Murphy's research interests include international relations in Asia, political development in Southeast Asia, U.S. foreign policy toward Southeast Asia, and the rise of transnational issues such as climate change and global health. With the support of a generous grant from the Smith Richardson Foundation, she is currently researching and writing a book on the impact of democratization on Indonesian foreign policy.

At the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, Dr. Murphy directs the Foreign Policy Analysis specialization in the graduate program, and teaches comparative foreign policy classes at the undergraduate level.

Dr. Murphy strives to bring the insights gained from working with policy-makers into the classroom, so that students gain a greater appreciation of the challenges facing statesmen.
