Felicia Liu
Lecturer in Sustainability



Felicia Liu is a Lecturer in Sustainability in the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of York. She teaches topics related to corporate sustainability, environmental management, and sustainable finance.

Her research is guided by her curiosity about the interaction between capital, society and nature in the Anthropocene. A core part of her work focuses on sustainable finance as an important tool in (re)mediating the relationship between human and non-human nature in contemporary times. Built upon her PhD that focussed on the development of sustainable finance in Asia, her current research looks at sustainable finance in the realms of biodiversity and fintech, including biodiversity finance disclosure and data needs, innovative market instruments for nature finance, and green fintech. Felicia is also interested in how society makes sense of anthropogenic environmental changes, as reflected in her ongoing work on contrasting media portrayal of (un)sustainable agroforestry practices in Southeast Asia, and her investigation into the construction of Seasons of the Anthropocene. She welcomes MSc and PhD students interested in corporate sustainability, sustainable finance, and non-state actor responses to environmental change.

Prior to joining DEG in January 2023, Felicia held a joint appointment at the University of Oxford as Junior Research Fellow in Geography at Jesus College and Research Associate at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment. She obtained her doctorate in Geography in 2022, jointly awarded by King’s College London and the National University of Singapore, and her thesis won the FinGeo Doctoral Dissertation Prize 2022. She also holds an MA in Climate Change (Distinction with Geography Department Prize, King’s College London) and BA in International Politics (First class, King’s College London).
