Before moving to the UK, Sabine obtained her bachelor and master degrees in law at the University of Liège, Belgium.

Additionally, she was awarded the Dean Moore Prize as recognition of her qualities as a researcher and was granted the Golding Essay Prize 2015 by the Competition Law Association. Furthermore, her monograph 'The Parody Exception in Copyright Law' was published by Oxford University Press in March 2019.

More recently, she became an editor of the International Journal of Public Law and Policy (IJPLAP) and conducted two funded research projects on the impact of algorithms as automated anti-piracy systems on cultural diversity and levelling the playing field in digital media advertising respectively.
