Mr Olivier Seret
Informatics Team Lead
I am the informatics team lead for the Parasites and Microbes programme. As a software developer, I am interested in software engineering and architecture. I am also passionate about developing teams and helping our scientists achieving their goals
I am a Software Developer by profession with an interest in science and genomics in particular. I love problem solving using technology and am passionate about software engineering, software architecture and agile approaches.
I am curious and like learning and trying new things. As such, I thrive in an environment where autonomy and people development are a priority.
Finally, I believe we all spend a large amount of time at work. It is therefore important to have a strong team spirit and most crucially have fun!
I graduated in Computer Science in France in 1998 and then moved to the UK. I worked for several top tier investment banks over the span of 20 years in different roles: Software Developer, Team Leader and Software Development Manager.
In 2019, I decided to change my career and move to a domain that has always fascinated me: Genomics. I was offered a Software Development position within the Pathogen Informatics group (now called Parasites and Microbes informatics) at Sanger.
I took the role of leading of the Parasites and Microbes Informatics group in April 2022.
