Felix is a Marine Biosecurity Scientist. His research focus is evolutionary ecology and his work helps with the interpretation, management and conservation of populations, species, and further biological diversity. Felix has expertise in genomics and bioinformatics, and he is particularly experienced with reduced-representation sequencing (e.g. RADseq, GBS), small whole-genome sequencing (i.e. bacterial WGS), and geometric morphometric analyses. Felix conducts research on a wide variety of organisms and is interested in detecting, tracking and eliminating invasive species.
