About Felix

Felix is a Research and Policy Associate at the Government Outcomes Lab, where he investigates new approaches to better organise the provision public services. He works with academics, investors, and local and central government to build evidence around how innovations in social policy and outcomes-based commissioning can improve citizen’s lives and their long-term prospects. 

Felix was previously a Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute and a visiting fellow at Alan Turing Institute, where he investigated and co-developed digital tools to advance public decision making. Alongside data scientists, he produced evidence-based research on how digital democracy tools can be harnessed to support law and policy making and leveraged the use of machine-learning tools into different policy areas, including constitution-making and peace mediation. 

He has worked as a consultant and advisor for organizations such as the International IDEA, Berghof Foundation, Democracy Reporting International, and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law of the British Institute for International and Comparative Law. Felix studied law in Germany and Italy, before completing a MSc in Law and Anthropology at LSE and a DPhil in Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Oxford.
