Felix first joined GMRI as a postdoctoral research associate in January 2017. His primary research focus is the impact of a changing ecosystem on Atlantic salmon marine productivity. He explores how changing ocean temperatures and food quality/availability affect the growth of Atlantic salmon.
Before joining GMRI, Felix spent two years in Bordeaux, France, as a postdoctoral fellow at the National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture (IRSTEA). There, he studied the migration potential of anadromous fish of the northern Atlantic.
Felix earned his master’s degree in fisheries science and a doctorate in ecology from Agrocampus Ouest in Rennes, France.
In his free time Felix enjoys hiking, climbing, exploring nature and sailing.
