Mathieu is a full Professor of developmental psychology since 2017. He is a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France and the adjunct director of the Psychology department at Paris Descartes University. He is also the co-head of the DEVMaster. He obtained is PhD in Psychology in 2010 (Paris Descartes University). He was a postdoctoral fellow at Mines ParisTech from 2010 to 2011 before being hired as an associate Professor at Paris Descartes university in 2011. His project aim at investigating the role of executive processes and of the socio-emotional context in the development of decision-making and creativity. More specifically, his research seek to provide a better understanding of how children, adolescents and adults make decisions in uncertain situations and how they generate new solutions to a problem in unknown environments.
