Biography

Professor Mattioli joined the Indiana University Maurer School of Law faculty in 2012. He teaches and writes on intellectual property and innovation policy more generally, with a special emphasis on patents, data, and contract law.

Mattioli’s research examines how the collective exchange of patents, data, and other forms of technological information relate to innovation policy. This theme canvases a variety of topics, including the structure, governance, and antitrust implications of patent pools, and how data pooling and the disclosure of metadata can advance “Big Data” technologies such as machine learning.

Mattioli has already made significant contributions to the field, having co-authored a book on Big Data (Big Data is Not a Monolith, MIT Press 2016), articles in leading law reviews, and book chapters that examine patent pools, data sharing, research consortia, novel forms of patent protection, and property "opt-outs." Before joining the faculty at IU, Mattioli served as the Microsoft Research Fellow at the University of California – Berkeley School of Law, and as the Microsoft Fellow in Law, Economics, and Technology at the University of Michigan Law School. Earlier in his professional life, Mattioli was a microchip designer.
