Auguste Dumouilla








Thèmes de recherche 

Auguste Dumouilla has a PhD in psychology. He is currently an affiliate researcher in the LaPEA (Laboratory of Applied Psychology and Ergonomics, – University of Paris, France). His main research topics are now: Serendipity – Vocational guidance – Soft-skills – Well-being – Training – Employability & NEETs. He also works as a psychology researcher for JobTeaser. JobTeaser’s mission is to accompany the new generation to reveal and fulfill themselves professionally all around Europe. Auguste Dumouilla also works as an independent researcher and trainer for practical specific missions.

He began his studies with a masters degree in science of physical activity. He started by designing sports training to fight sedentariness and improve health among populations with specific needs (e.g., autism). One day, in a library, he came across a book with a big « sedentarity » on the first page and happily checked it out. But inside, instead of physical exercise content, it was the story of a certain Horace Walpole… That was the start of the serendipity story  from this specific unexpected event until the end of his PhD, Auguste Dumouilla designed his research around serendipity and create training to foster the emergence of it.
