Matteo Patriarca was born on June 2nd, 1983 in Marino, Italy. In 2014 he got his master's degree with 110/110 cum laude after completing a thesis on electro-optical simulations of polymer solar cell.

From November 2014 to March 2018 he attended the Ph.D. course in electronic engineering at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", working on the development of discretization techniques to solve carrier transport mechanisms in electronic and optoelectronic devices (Ph.D. thesis: "Discretization Schemes of the van Roosbroeck System for the Carrier Fluxes in Semiconductor Devices").

Since May 2018 he is a Postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata".
