Hi, my name is Matteo. I am a postdoctoral researcher at Deakin University – Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation, and I am passionate about political violence, its causes, its impact on society, and the study of what could prevent it.
I have a PhD in ‘Sociology and Methodology of Social Research’ (2011, Catholic University of Milan), and a second PhD in Political Science at Monash University (2016) on the psychology of violent extremism in Australia.
I use both quantitative and qualitative methods.
I am a regular contributor on the SBS Italian radio program, providing weekly political commentary and analysis.
Some of the research that I conducted created public debate and policy discussion. Please see some of the media coverage here:
