Ever since I can remember, rocks and especially fossils have fascinated me, resulting in a massive collection from around the World.
My name is Sarah Dorthea Møller. I was born in Denmark in 1987 and is currently living in Copenhagen with my partner and former fellow student Morten Lunde. I recently finished a master's degree in Geology-Geoscience at the University of Copenhagen with focus in palaeontology. During my studies I especially developed an affection for microorganisms resulting in a bachelor and master thesis concerning the nannofossils in the Cretaceous chalks of Denmark. In my spare time I enjoy exploring the nature around me or to be creative working with different materials. A combination of the two is however always preferred in particular in collaboration with friends and family. I am not afraid of trying new things as I believe that is the fastest way to evolve and progress.
