Matteo is a Research Officer at the Centre for Economic Performance (LSE).

His research investigates the effectiveness for crime prevention of a variety of interventions, such as early childhood interventions, legislation changes and policing operations. Matteo also studies the use of discipline sanctions in school and their implications for students’ performance and criminal activity.
