Felix Pötzl obtained both his BSc and MSc degree from the University of Bonn, Germany, finishing his studies in 2016. He followed that up with a PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn within the International Max-Planck Research School for Astrophysics Bonn/Cologne, which he concluded in 2021.
After completing his PhD, he worked for one year as lecturer at the University College Cork, teaching undergraduate physics and astrophysics courses, while expanding his research on radio-polarimetric studies of jets in active galactic nuclei. Starting in October 2022, he is currently working as postdoctoral researcher at IA-FORTH on the ERC-grant-awarded project of “SMILE: Search for Milli-lenses to discriminate between dark matter models” with Carolina Casadio.
