Sabina's research interests include metacognitive processes, their measurement, biases and their role in educational settings (schools and tertiary education, including Life-long User Modelling and User Interface). She developed a unique instrumentation incorporating cognitive and metacognitive training - Stats_mIQ - which has been used as a formative assessment tool during a large statistics course taught at the School of Psychology, USyd, demonstrating powerful improvements in the learning environment. Her research also focuses on decision-making, including the development of another unique instrumentation to capture response-selection strategies people use during test-taking activities. Sabina's other stream of research includes educational psychology.
