Professor Mattioli joined the Indiana University Maurer School of Law faculty in 2012. He teaches and writes on intellectual property, with a special emphasis on patents, and on contract law. Mattioli's research examines how new forms of knowledge-sharing and collective licensing influence patenting, industrial organization, and the process of innovation itself.

Mattioli has already made significant contributions to the field, having published articles in leading law reviews that examine patent pools, research consortia, novel forms of patent protection, and property "opt-outs." Most recently, he has examined how the design of patent licenses and related contracts can influence long-term technological development. Before arriving in Indiana, Mattioli served as the Microsoft Research Fellow at the UC Berkeley School of Law, and as the Microsoft Fellow in Law, Economics, and Technology at the University of Michigan Law School.
