Isabel Frost is a fellow at the Center for Disease, Dynamics, Economics & Policy. Dr. Frost earned her Master of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Bristol and went on to complete a Doctor of Philosophy in Systems Biology at the University of Oxford. Her doctoral work utilized a combination of modelling and wet lab techniques to explore the role of microbial interactions in the evolution of antibiotic resistance. Over the course of her graduate studies, Dr. Frost gained experience at the World Health Organization where she saw the vital role of policy in combating infectious disease. Dr. Frost was drawn to CDDEP by the opportunity to work on projects where science and policy overlap and to contribute to the rapidly emerging threat of antimicrobial resistance.
