Matthieu Raoelison

After completing his engineering studies in Bordeaux at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Cognitique, where he was first introduced to the cognitive sciences, Matthieu was drawn to a research career through the Dual Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences. While undertaking this multidisciplinary program at University College London, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, and the Ecole Normale Supérieure, he researched judgment and decision making, psychology of reasoning, and many other fields.  Interested in dual-process theories and cognitive biases, he joined LaPsyDÉ in 2017 to pursue his PhD under the supervision of Wim De Neys for the DIAGNOR ANR project. He is currently working on inter-individual differences in conflict detection under reasoning.
