photo Prof.

Matthieu Wyart studied physics, mathematics and economics at the Ecole Polytechnique in  Paris where he obtained in 2001 his degree in physics with Honors  and, the following year, the Diploma of Advanced Studies in Theoretical Physics, with highest Honors at the Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris.

In 2006 he obtained a doctoral degree in Theoretical Physics and Finance at the SPEC, CEA Saclay, Paris  with a thesis on electronic markets. He then moved to the United States, to  Harvard, Janelia farm, and Princeton before joining in 2010 New York University as Assistant Professor, where he was promoted Associate professor in 2014. 

In July 2015, he was appointed  Associate Professor of Theoretical Physics in the School of Basic Sciences  at EPFL.
