He co-convenes the Empirical Legal Studies Discussion Group (since 2017) and has previously co-convened the EU Law Discussion Group (2018-2020). He is also a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Luxembourg. Previously, he held a number of lectureships, including at Queen's College, Somerville College (covering the sabbatical leave of Professor Julie Dickson), Mansfield, and a Stipendiary Lectureship at St Peter's (covering the maternity and research leave of Dr Dorota Leczykiewicz). He was also a Guest Lecturer in Law and Technology (M2/LL.M.) at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, a Research Assistant of Dr Geneviève Helleringer and Professor Horst Eidenmüller, an Associate Editor at the Oxford Business Law Blog, and a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law. Felix read law at the undergraduate level at the Universities of Maastricht and Glasgow and at the graduate and postgraduate levels at Brasenose College, Oxford.

His doctoral research, supervised by Professor Stephen Weatherill and Dr Dorota Leczykiewicz, was on the regulation of online platforms, in particular on standard contract terms, ADR/ODR, and compliance. His research combines a comparative and empirical approach to understand how online platforms function and how consumer redress can be improved. Leading outlets like the European Law Journal and Oxford University Press featured his research. All publications are on ORCID.
