Sabin's research has focused on global and regional plate tectonics, and how the changing distribution of land and sea over geological time is linked to the deep churning interior of our planet. This work has relevance to a wide range of fields, including better understanding Earth's ancient geography, ocean circulation, deep-time and long-term climate, and the formation of mineral resources. The digital and community plate tectonic reconstructions that Sabin has been contributing to since 2008 also have implications for understanding the present-day occurrence of natural hazards, especially volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis that are generated at plate boundaries. Sabin received his PhD in 2015, and is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the School of Geosciences at the University of Sydney.
