Aim always to grow and learn, never for perfection

About Me

Sabine is a research fellow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), at the University of Western Australia in Perth, Western Australia.

An expert in galaxy evolution, she uses large telescopes from all over the world to learn about the billions of galaxies in our Universe, and how they got there. She works with many international collaborations and projects, dealing with huge datasets and supercomputers to expand our knowledge of the diversities and histories of galaxies in our cosmos.

She is a 2021/22 “Superstar of STEM”, a program developed by Science & Technology Australia to increase the public visibility of women in STEM.

Sabine is passionate not only about astronomy and astrophysics, but also about science more broadly. From being able to explain the world around us (why are soap bubbles colourful, and why is the sky blue?) to helping us understand and solve the big problems we currently face, science is a wonderful tool that should be shared as broadly as possible.
