Ayanna Glaize is a Ph. D. candidate working in Dr. Sid Thakur’s lab in the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology at North Carolina State University. Her current research is focused on antimicrobial-resistant surveillance of foodborne pathogens and developing tools that can reduce food safety risks. She is interested in extending her research of antimicrobial-resistant pathogens while expanding her scope to include metagenomics. Ayanna is also interested in becoming involved with public health research and studying neglected tropical diseases.
