Remy Dou, Ph.D. grew up and taught in a richly diverse metropolis. As an Einstein Fellow living near Washington, DC, Remy worked on projects related to both engagement and diversity in STEM education, including the development of a design and evaluation framework for federal STEM intervention programs led by the Office of Science and Technology Policy. This framework was used by the White House’s Committee on STEM Education in the development of a five-year Federal STEM education strategic plan. Remy also worked at the National Science Foundation in the Education and Human Resources directorate contributing to projects related to both the Advancing Informal STEM Learning program and the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching program.

Currently, he works in academia performing research investigating the affective outcomes of active-learning strategies in STEM education. His focus lies in career decision-making constructs, including self-efficacy, interest, and recognition. Specifically, he analyzes social interactions in the active-learning classroom using social network analysis, and looks at the relationship between interactions and the development of these constructs. He has presented on these topics in various places including the National Science Foundation, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the National Association for Research in Science Teaching.

Remy has taught high school biology, AP Biology, chemistry, and physics. He has also led teacher technology workshops and pre-service teacher training. As a former K-12 Science Department Director, he helped transform his school’s science “culture” across all grade levels. He has received various awards, grants, and accolades for his work in K-12 education, as well as his academic research.

Remy’s many hobbies include writing, both nonfiction and fiction. He is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. He has contributed academic and opinion articles to various academic journals, and also serves as a department editor of the American Biology Teacher.
