Meet Ryan, I.T. Project Assistant for AO Recycling
I’m Ryan, and I work for the recycling part of AO as an I.T. project assistant. What that means is that I work with all departments of the business to understand their problems and implement systems and solutions that allow them to overcome them in order to increase performance.
I studied Biology at the University of Worcester, which may seem rather different to my career, but there is a surprising amount of overlap. These days most of the interest in biosciences lies on the molecular side. DNA, proteins, you name it. There are terabytes and terabytes of data that have been gathered by sequencing or ‘reading’ these molecules, so biologists have begun to embrace I.T. as a way of sifting through this data for the breakthroughs they’re looking for.
While I was undertaking my 3rd-year research project, I had to write a couple of R scripts to process some data I’d collected and realised that my talents and interests had naturally grown towards I.T. over the course of my degree. A career managing projects in I.T. felt like the right fit for me, and I look forward to seeing where this rabbit hole will take me!
