Dr. Remy Dou is an assistant professor and NSF CAREER awardee (AISL Award #1846167) with dual appointments in the Department of Teaching and Learning and the STEM Transformation Institute at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. His research focuses on science learning in non-school settings like zoos, parks, and in the home, and how those experiences shape factors related to STEM interest and identity. Currently, Dr. Dou leads a research team in identifying aspects of everyday science talk that relate to the development of children’s science interests and identity, focusing on Latine children and families. He also spends some of his time examining K-12 STEM teacher leadership in STEM education policy arenas.
Prior to his work as a researcher, Dr. Dou was selected to the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship through which he served two years at the National Science Foundation in the Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings. During his fellowship years (2011-2013), he worked on projects related to student engagement in STEM, informal STEM learning, and diversity in STEM education, including working with the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a framework for federal STEM intervention programs.
