Mathilde Pauls (born 26 September 1983 in Berlin, Germany) is a German and British rower. She won the lightweight women's double at 2005 Amsterdam U23 World Championships together with Maxi Grützmacher. The same year she had also finished 3rd at the Eton World Cup in the lightweight women's single, her first World Cup and World Championship appearance.

In 2008 she struggled with back injury, finishing in the B-Final at 2008 Linz World Championships.
Other notable rowing achievements include a win in the 2005 Cambridge-Oxford Boat Race as the stroke of the Cambridge crew; reaching the final of the women's single, The Princess Royal Challenge Cup at 2008 Henley Royal; as well as wins in the single at Henley Women's Regatta.
After rowing Mathilde moved on to Duathlon, Triathlon, Neurology and Cycling, winning Gold medals at Duathlon European and World Championships at age group level. She continues to compete successfully in amateur bike racing.
