Matteo M. Galizzi

Biography

Matteo M Galizzi is Assistant Professor of Behavioural Science and ESRC Future Research Leader Fellow at the LSE, where he is affiliated to LSE Health and Social Care, the Department of Social Policy, the LSE Behavioural Research Lab, and the Centre for the Study of Incentives in Health. Matteo is an experimental and behavioural economist conducting behavioural experiments between the lab and the field in the area of health and social policy. Graduated from University of Pavia (Italy), he holds an MSc in Econometrics and a PhD in Economics from the University of York (UK). He has taken research, teaching, and visiting positions at Universities of Pavia, York, Varese, Autonoma of Barcelona, Brescia, Queen Mary London, Durham, and Paris School of Economics.

Matteo’s core methodological expertise is the design of lab-field experiments, and ‘behavioural data linking’, i.e. the linkage of behavioural economics experiments to survey panels, administrative records, biomarkers banks, scan data, and other ‘big data’ sources. He has been working on: i) the unintended 'behavioural spillovers' of policy interventions and financial incentives; ii) the links between lab measures and field behaviour ('external validity'), including the cross-validation between experimental and survey data; iii) the evaluation of health policy interventions through randomised controlled and natural experiments; and iv) the behavioural aspects of time, including time preferences, subjective time perception, valuing and giving time, time use, and response times. He is currently leading a project linking experimental, survey, administrative, and biomarkers data for a representative sample of the UK population within Understanding Society, the world-largest household panel.

At the LSE, Matteo is teaching Research Methods for the Behavioural Science (SA4M3E)and Behavioural Science for Health (SA4N3E) at the Exec MSc in Behavioural Science. He has contributed to establish the LSE Behavioural Research Lab (BRL) and to revamp the LSE Behavioural Economics seminar series, the LSE Behavioural Twitter account, the Behavioural Public Policy (BPP) list, and the Behavioural Science Special Lectures. He has also founded and coordinated the LSE Behavioural Science blog, the London Behavioural and Experimental Group (LBEG), the Behaviour & Experiments mailing list, the London Experimental Week (LEWeek), the Behavioural Experiments in Health Network (BEH-Net), and the Data Linking Initiative in Behavioural Science (DLIBS).
