Sabine is currently Research Fellow in the ARC-Laureate Program in International History (directed by Prof Glenda Sluga), Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney, where she is in charge of the 'Planetary Pasts and Futures'-research theme. Her research explores how modern institutions and principles, in general, and the nation-state, in particular, are reinvented in the face of planetary challenges.
Before joining Sydney University in November 2017, Sabine spent over a decade at the London School of Economics (LSE), most recently as Research Fellow in the ERC-funded research programme 'Security in Transition' (directed by Prof Mary Kaldor), based at LSE's Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit. From 2013 to 2016, she was also Research Fellow in Ulrich Beck’s ERC-funded project ‘Methodological Cosmopolitanism: In the Laboratory of Climate Change’ at Ludwig-Maximillians-Universität München.
Since 2012, Sabine is Visiting Faculty at Ecole des Affaires Internationales at Sciences Po in Paris, France; and since 2015 she is a Research Associate at the Institute for Global Prosperity at University College London (UCL).
Sabine holds a PhD in Government from the LSE.
