Her research focusses on the identification of new mechanisms of protein translocation in bacteria, using a biochemical and biophysical approach. In particular: lipid-protein interaction, membrane modelling and single-molecule microscopy.

Outside of the lab, Sabrina enjoys engaging communication among scientists and the public. She organises workshops and conferences, such as: The Gordon Research Seminar, which encourages the presentation of unpublished data and cutting-edge research.
