Research and development in the application of satellite data to the
solution of environmental problem with the specific emphasis on land and
atmosphere. The topics include climate and weather impacts on ecosystems
and human activities, climate variability, environmental hazards,
satellite data application and interpretation. Developed advanced
technique for monitoring drought, fire risk, El Nino/La Nina features,
and mosquito-borne epidemics from operational environmental satellites.
Principal investigator of numerous national and international projects
funded by the Agency for International Development, by-national funds,
UN=s Food and Agricultural Organization, NATO and NOAA. International
cooperation activities with government institutions, universities, and
private organizations transferring new technologies. Author and co-
author more than 150 scientific papers, including book chapters.
Felix has acted as Principal Investigator of numerous national and
international projects funded by the Agency for International Development,
the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, NATO and NOAA.
He has lead global-scale international cooperation with government
institutions, universities, and private organizations in transferring new
technologies. He is a member of the UN World Meteorological Organization
(WMO) Technical Team and of the editorial board of the Indian Journal of Remote Sensing.
