Simon came to bioinformatics after training as a molecular biologist. He originally did a first degree in microbiology at Warwick University before moving on to do a PhD in molecular evolution at Newcastle University.

Simon always had a keen interest in the application of computing to biology and following his PhD he moved into a full time bioinformatics position. He initially worked at the BBSRC Bioscience IT Services where he was a protein analysis specialist and was responsible for providing training in bioinformatics to the various BBSRC Institutes.

In 2000 he moved to the Babraham institute, where he has been the head of bioinformatics since the end of 2009.
