Academic/Professional Experience and Achievements: 

Matteo joined IRES in 2007. He was awarded his PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2005. Before joining CEU, Matteo worked at University College Dublin (Ireland), the University of Edinburgh, and St Andrews University in the UK.

Matteo’s interests include Central Asian, Caucasian and post-Soviet politics more broadly; the comparative study of authoritarianism; international security; the politics of development; ethno -nationalism, migration, and diasporas; state failure and collapse; the 'water-energy-food security nexus'. His recent and forthcoming publications include articles in the International Political Science Review, Europe-Asia Studies, Ethnopolitics, Central Asian Survey, Osteuropa, and Electoral Studies (forthcoming, 2014). Matteo has been recipient of several research grants and awards, from the UK Economic and Social Research Council, the British Academy, the American Political Science Association, the Open Society Foundations’ Higher Education Support Program, the International Studies Association, and the British Association for Slavonic and Eastern European Studies, the Korea Foundation, and the Academy of Korean Studies.

Matteo is currently involved in a teaching and research capacity building project in Myanmar (with the University of Yangon and Mandalay University). He was Academic Director of ‘Rethinking the International Security Agenda’, a project funded by the Open Society Foundations (2009-2012). He serves on the advisory board of the OSF’s Central Asia Research and Training Initiative (CARTI), and leads the ‘Tajikistan and Afghanistan Access Program’ (OSF/HESP). Matteo has served on the executive committee of the Ethnicity, Nationalism and Migration section of the International Studies Association (ISA), where he has been Program Co-Chair for the ISA Conventions between 2009 and 2012. He has consulted the UK Ministry of Defense, the Italian Foreign Ministry, the High Commissioner on Ethnic Minorities (HCNM/OSCE), and the UK Ethnic Minority Law Centre. He regularly contributes to Oxford Analytica and the Johns Hopkins University’s Central Asia and the Caucasus Analyst.
