Félix is a Visiting Scholar at the Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs under Dr. Nicola De Blasio’s supervision. His research focuses on low-carbon hydrogen trading in the context of the Inflation Reduction Act, highlighting both the technical challenges and geopolitical consequences.
Presently, Félix is concluding his MSc in Mechanical Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) with a focus on energy and sustainable development. Early in his Master’s journey at ETHZ, he embarked on a research project on hydrogen production from biomass gasification at EMPA with Dr. Binod Koirala. He pursued his Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), having also spent a year at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH).
Beyond his academic pursuits, Félix gained practical experience through a 7-month CO2 capture data analyst internship at Climeworks and a subsequent 5-month position at Aktio as a carbon consultant. These experiences further broadened his perspective on the multiple aspects associated with tackling the climate crisis, reinforcing his commitment to making a lasting impact on this global challenge.
