Felix is a PhD student in the Department of Cultural Anthropology at Duke University. Centered on the post-growth city, his research critically explores emerging forms of urban sociality, post-growth urban futures, and our relationship to the historical and material legacy of the built environment. He investigates these issues through an ethnographic project on the residential communities of long-standing suburban public housing projects (danchi) in Tokyo, Japan. His other interests include gender and the family, labor and precarity, Marxism and political economy, the politics of cultural heritage and architectural preservation, and the anthropology of space. 

Felix holds a B.A. (Japan in East Asia, 2016) and an M.A (Interdisciplinary Information Studies, 2018) from the University of Tokyo.
