Sabine graduated from the Dresden University of Technology (Germany) and completed her doctorate (Economic Geography) at the Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main (Germany).

Current Research

Sabine’s research interests include the changing global production and trade relations, primarily in financial and other services industries, and the dynamics of urban, financial and real estate development. Her research combines insights from economic geography, economics, political economy, and sociology.

Sabine is interested in developing alternative ways of analysing the global financial system, particularly the relational nature of complex local production systems of finance in the world’s leading financial centres. Related to this, she is interested in how these financial centres create economic resilience in the face of market discontinuities and political ruptures, and how shifts toward ‘sustainable finance’ and technological immersion affect financial activities and institutions. Sabine is a curious observer and critical commentator on the political economies of the world’s leading financial centres.
