Matteo Aggio joined Lear in September 2018 as Junior Consultant. He is involved in diverse antitrust projects, assisting private companies in proceedings before the Italian Competition Authority, as well as projects focused on policy and regulation assessment.
In July 2019, Matteo obtained his Ph.D. at the Department of Economic of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. His research is twofold: part of it regards topics of industrial organization, and in particular the incentives to collude (tacitly or explicitly) between firms that are differently informed about the market demand. The other research interest regards organizational economics, with special emphasis on team behavior and bounded rationality. Matteo spent a visiting period in Cambridge (MA), where he attended the Sloan School of Management of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and where he wrote part of his graduate dissertation.
Matteo holds a B.Sc. in International Trade and a M.Sc. in Economics obtained at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. During these years, Matteo developed a strong background in microeconomics, later widened during his Ph.D. years, when his interest in economic theory became prominent. He also taught, as teaching assistant, various bachelor and master courses at the Department of Economics of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.
