A researcher at Artefact, Felix describes his job as “a little bit like the Sorting Hat in Harry Potter” because he strives to read people and situations to find the deeper themes and insights. Felix uses his research abilities on a range projects at Artefact, from healthcare to IoT.
Before joining Artefact, Felix worked on data analytics and cybersecurity products at IBM’s new design division, where he coached dozens of product teams and Fortune 500 clients on design thinking. His thesis in cognitive psychology at Stanford University examined how immersive virtual reality can help reduce social stigma. His passion for creating positive outcomes for people has led him to work with education technology labs at Stanford School of Medicine and Columbia University.
When he is not mentoring students outside of work, you can find Felix frolicking across a dance floor or inhaling ice cream, duck confit, and pork buns at Seattle’s best restaurants.
