Matteo is currently a PhD Candidate in the OB & Strategy Department at Imperial College Business School.

His work is mainly concerned with modern enterprises' strategic decisions and behavioural patterns in multiple-goal/multiple-optima scenarios, especially under uncertainty, bounded rationality, and imperfect information. A particular emphasis is reserved for CSR/Sustainability motives and efforts, and their explanation in a holistic decision-making process.

His broader interests cover Strategy, Sustainability, Behavioural Economics, Organisational Theory, Optimisation (stochastic, robust, non-convex), Microeconomics, and Machine Learning.

Matteo is also part of the core team of the Leonardo research centre at Imperial College, where he contributes to the joint research effort toward mapping corporate sustainability behaviours and performance dimensions.

Matteo took his BSc in “Economics and Finance” at Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), having spent a semester abroad at Victoria University (Wellington, New Zealand) as an exchange student. He continued his studies with a joint degree program that awarded him an MSc in “Economics and Social Sciences” at Bocconi University, together with an MRes in Economics at Namur University (Namur, Belgium) and at the Catholic University of Louvain (Louvain, Belgium).
