Sabine Hossenfelder is a research fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, which is an independent, multidisciplinary thinktank dedicated to theoretical physics and adjacent fields. She has published more than 50 research articles on topics ranging from the physics of black holes to cosmology to the foundations of quantum mechanics.

In the last decade, her research has focused on the question where to best search for experimental evidence of quantum gravity. Besides her research in physics, Sabine also has an interest in the philosophy and the sociology of science which reflects in much of the writing on her well-read blog Backreaction.

Sabine partly works as a freelance science writer (writing samples here). Besides various book reviews for Physics World and Physics Today, she has written for New Scientist, Scientific American, NOVA, Aeon, Quanta Magazine, and the Swedish popular science magazine Forskning och Framsteg (Research and Progress). Since 2014, she also regularly contributes to the Forbes collection Starts With A Bang on topics in cosmology and astrophysics. Her writing has won her prizes at the annual essay contest of the Foundational Questions Institute several times. Sabine is frequently contacted by journalists and always happy to talk about research, both old and new.

You can also find Sabine on Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogger, ResearchGate, YouTube and Flickr.
