Felicitas is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Aerospace and Geodesy, Chair of Land Management, at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). As a Science & Technology Studies-inspired legal anthropologist, she studies concepts and values of property and sustainability through the socio-technical infrastructures of data, registers, and administrations. She initiated the research project 'Green Data, Indicators, Algorithms: Connecting Green Finance and Smart Cities' that she now also leads. GreenDIA is an interdisciplinary consortium research project involving the Chairs of Land Management (TUM), Remote Sensing (Uni BW), and Statistics & Data Science (LMU). The project investigates cross-sectoral standards and criteria for sustainability measurement in relation to land sealing and land use for residential buildings. This focus builds on her experience as a sustainable finance analyst in a small consultancy, where she was responsible for developing an ESG-rating methodology.

At THE NEW INSTITUTE, Felicitas was involved in the program Reclaiming Common Wealth.
