Felix holds a degree in electrical engineering with 5 years of experience in aeronautics and is about to graduate the “Master of Renewable Energy Systems” from the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg.
Until 2014, Felix worked 5 years for Airbus in Bremen dealing with space applications like implementing experiments for the ISS and executing tests for the European launch vehicle ARIANE 6. In particular, in-flight power harvesting with solar panels and thermoelectric generators led to a growing interest for renewable energy technologies.
During the first 4 years at Airbus, Felix was completing a trainee program that includes the degree of an electrical engineer at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen, the apprenticeship degree mechatronics technician, 5‑month studies at the Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain, 2‑month internship at Airbus Sevilla in Spain and flight lessons.
During an optional 5-month term at the prestigious Bogaziçi Üniversitesi in Istanbul, he could broaden his horizon while studying principles of environmental pollution, global climate change, energy and environment and sustainable development. Besides his studies in Hamburg, he has been teaching mathematics to undergraduate students and supervising the physic laboratory since 2015.
Felix has been working for the greenwerk. since April 2015. Amongst others, he contributed to the publication “How Energy Efficiency Cuts Costs for a 2-Degree Future” for the US foundation “climateworks”. In summer 2016, he has concluded his Master Thesis “Feasibility of Sustainable Power Supply in India until 2050 supported by an Infrastructure Pension Fund” at the greenwerk. Since September 2016 Felix is associated with the greenwerk. as freelance researcher.
