Sabrina is the incoming Professor of Quantum Information and Logic at the University of Helsinki, the Chair of Theoretical Physics at the University of Turku and an Adjunct Professor at Aalto University, Finland. She is the Vice Director of the Finnish Centre of Excellence for Quantum Technolgies. She serves on the Boards of the Centre for Quantum Engineering at Aalto University, of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (Austria) and of the Nordita-Condensed Matter Institute (Sweden).

Sabrina obtained her PhD at the University of Palermo (Italy) in 2004. She has held academic research positions around the world, in Sofia (Bulgaria), Durban (South Africa), Turku (Finland) and Edinburgh (UK). She returned to Finland in 2014 to lead the Theoretical Physics Laboratory in Turku.

Sabrina has coordinated several international and interdisciplinary projects, and is recognised as one of the leading experts in Quantum Technologies.

She loves inventing novel approaches to doing research, learning, and innovating, and believes in the power of "engineering synchronicity" and in the joys of good food, sauna, road-trips, and outdoor living.
