Sabrina's PhD research explores zero packaging food systems and how these models could lead to social, environmental and economic benefits within a degrowth economy. Her study is an interdisciplinary research between the School of Agriculture and food science and the School of Business of the University of Queensland.

BSc thesis: Hydroelectric Dams Impact in the Amazon Forest: Greenhouses Gas (GHG) production - The Brazil's example
MSc thesis: Economic analysis of the role of carbon services from the Amazon forests for climate change mitigation.

After a BSc. in Biology (University of Geneva - Switzerland) and a MSc. in Environmental Economics (The University of Queensland), Sabrina redirected her interests from science to economics, convinced that to solve the interlinked social and ecological crisis we need to change the roots of our economy.

In 2017 she founded the Brisbane Tool Library, a social enterprise that based on a degrowth economy aims to reduce household consumption.
