During the last three years at Aalto University, he was a PI for the project entitled “Consistency of valued preference relations for decision analytics methods” of the Academy of Finland. Besides basic undergraduate courses, Matteo has taught graduate courses in decision analysis, optimization theory, information fusion and fuzzy sets theory. He awarded twice the “Teacher of the Year Award” (Spring 2013 and Autumn 2013) of the Systems Analysis Laboratory, Aalto University. His research interests include decision analysis, operations research, information fusion methods and mathematical representations of uncertainty. Matteo is in the editorial board of the “International Journal of General Systems” and “Mathematical and Computational Applications”.
