Mathieu Cassotti (Pr)

Mathieu est professeur en psychologie du développement à l'institut de psychologie de l'Université Paris Descartes et membre junior de l'Institut Universitaire de France. Il est également directeur adjoint de l'Institut de Psychologie de l'Université Paris Descartes et directeur des études du DEV-Master. Il a obtenu un Master de psychologie cognitive à l'Université Paris Descartes en 2006 et réalisé une thèse au LaPsyDÉ sous la direction de Sylvain Moutier en 2010. Il a ensuite effectué un post-doctorat  au Centre de Gestion Scientifique de l'École des Mines de Paris sous la direction d'Armand Hatchuel. Il a co-dirigé les thèses de Marianne Habib (2012), Ania Aïte (2013) et Anaïs Osmont (2015) sur le rôle des émotions et du contexte social dans la prise de décision. Tout en poursuivant ces thématiques de recherche dans le cadre de la thèse de Lison Bouhours, il s'intéresse également à la génération d'idées créatives. Il a dirigé un projet ANR sur ce sujet (Idéfixe) et a encadré la thèse d'Anaëlle Camarda (2017) sur le rôle de l'inhibition cognitive et de l'inhibition sociale dans le développement de la créativité.
