During her Bachelor’s in Cognitive Science, Meret became interested in (human) evolution, genetics, and the application of computer science methods. She later received her Master’s in Bioinformatics, focusing on metagenomic analyses and ancient genomics. In her PhD, she is part of the Microbes: Understanding cave sediments as microbiota archives project (RA 1) at the GACT. She focuses on developing bioinformatics methods for analysing ancient metagenomic data collected from sediment and cave samples.
