Isabel Rodriguez-Barraquer, MD, PhD, MHS's research focuses in applying novel epidemiological and statistical methods to understand the dynamics of infectious diseases and inform control interventions. While she is interested in infectious diseases generally, most of her work has focused on understanding shifts in the epidemiology of vector borne diseases including dengue, leishmaniasis, chikungunya, malaria and Zika.

Her UC Noyce Initiative project, “A Unified Framework to Study the Local Transmission Dynamics of Infectious Disease from Multiple Data Sources,” aims to develop a framework for joint inference of local infectious disease transmission dynamics from multiple data sources (genomic, case, wastewater, and seroprevalence). This knowledge could inform best practices for managing future pandemics.
