Rémi is especially interested in uncovering patterns and factors that affect the different level of attention to topics and issues between social spheres. In his thesis, he examined how research papers about climate change resonated on Twitter by investigating communities of active users and circulation pathways. Rémi’s work is rooted in science and technology studies (STS), digital communication, environmental communication, information science, and data studies.
