Emmanuel Vincent

founder Climate Feedback

Emmanuel Vincent is the President of the Science Feedback association. He holds a PhD in climate science from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, USA), studying how the ocean controls hurricane intensity and how hurricanes in turn influence the climate via their interaction with the ocean. While in the US, Emmanuel launched the Climate Feedback project, an international network of scientists who review influential climate change media coverage and provide feedback to readers, journalists and editors about its scientific credibility. He recently cofounded Science Feedback to broaden this approach to other scientific fields prone to misunderstandings or organized campaigns of disinformation (e.g. health, see HealthFeedback.org). One of the primary goals is to help platforms like Facebook, Google and Youtube, which act as gatekeepers of online information, to promote credible sources of information.
