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, Fl. 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 also on Latine children and families. He also spends some of his time examining K-12 STEM teacher leadership in education policy arenas. As an educator, he contributes to the preparation of pre-service STEM teachers, as well as mentors students seeking research experiences in informal STEM education fields.
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 (NSF) 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. Remy holds a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction, specializing in Physics Education Research and Educational Statistics.
Dr. Dou’s collaborative interests lie in the affective dimension of participants’ experiences in informal learning environments. He is particularly interested in work that contributes to our understanding of STEM identity, career choice, and equity. He is also deeply interested in and familiar with a variety of statistical and analytical tools, including social network analysis, structural equation modeling, hierarchical linear modeling, and longitudinal analysis of network data.
