Mr Simon Suddaby



This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

My role focuses on building software tools that enhance public health understanding through efficient data processing and analysis of genomic datasets


My previous professional experience comes from the medical device industry where I focused on process development and the integration of software to automate manual processes. I left this industry to pursue a career in genomics and completed my Master’s degree in Bioinformatics at the University of Glasgow in the autumn of 2021. I am particularly interested in making bioinformatics accessible to a wider audience through building software that open-source, easy to run and advances public understanding of disease.

Current role

My main interest as a Bioinformatician is building well designed, scalable genomic data processing pipelines that inform public health decision making. My day-to-day activities include;

  • Building robust, scientifically accurate pipelines that scale to high volumes of data
  • Methods development and refinement
  • Deployment of pipelines on multiple environments
