About myself

Hello! My name is Nicola Romanò, and I am a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences (CDBS) at the University of Edinburgh.

I am interested in understanding how cells decode and interpret signals from their environment to generate meaningful outputs. I mostly use neuroendocrine systems (the ones that produce hormones in your body) to study this question.

I am also very interested in data analysis, machine learning and all these beautiful things, some of which I teach at ZJE, the Joint Institute between the University of Edinburgh and Zhejiang University, in Haining, China.

I also offer consulting services in data science and bioinformatics!
