Felix Mormann is a faculty fellow at Stanford's Steyer–Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance and associate professor at the University of Miami School of Law. He joined the Steyer–Taylor Center after two years as Stanford Law School's Kauffman Fellow. Drawing on his background as an internationally trained corporate and energy lawyer, Mormann investigates domestic and international regulation and policy related to clean–energy technologies.
Mormann's research interests lie at the intersection of law and innovation in the context of environmental and energy law and policy. Most recently he has investigated the regulatory and policy challenges of the transition toward a sustainable energy future. His often–comparative research starts from the premise that environmentally sustainable energy solutions require an economically sustainable policy landscape to leverage the necessary investment. Mormann is the author and co–author of several articles published in leading journals in the U.S. and Europe. Sellier European Law Publishers published his doctoral dissertation as a book.
Previously, Mormann was a visiting scholar at University of California Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), where he conducted research for his doctoral dissertation. Mormann worked as a corporate and energy lawyer for some of Germany's premiere law firms. As a management consultant for McKinsey & Company, he advised international clients from the high–tech sector. Mormann holds a German JD and a JSD from the University of Passau School of Law as well as an LLM from UC Berkeley School of Law. He is admitted to the practice of law in Germany and New York.
