Felix is an undergraduate student at the University of Ottawa. He began his studies in the Biochemistry program in 2013 before switching to Physics and Mathematics. Felix developed his interest in quantum mechanics while studying the Wigner function representation of weak measurements for his honours research project with Professor Jeff Lundeen. He joined the SQO group in 2017 to work on various quantum key distribution projects.
When he is not studying physics, Felix enjoys various sports including playing volleyball at the University of Ottawa, rock climbing, and running. He also enjoys playing music on piano and guitar.
