Dr. Remy Dou is an Associate Professor with dual appointments in the Department of Teaching and Learning and the STEM Transformation Institute at Florida International University in Miami, FL. In 2019, Dr. Dou received the highly competitive National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) awardee (AISL Award #1846167), which is considered “the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty.

Dr. Dou's research focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) identity development that occurs through family interactions in non-school settings like the home, zoos and parks. Currently, he leads the Talking Science research lab, which investigates how family science conversations shape youth and families' affinity with and perceptions of STEM fields. His studies highlight the diverse voices and cultures of Latine communities, and represent members from those communities as researchers, advisors, developers and participants. These efforts build on a commitment to the construction of equitable and transformative STEM spaces.
