Connor was born and raised in Kansas, where he discovered a profound passion for science while camping in Colorado and finding insects on his backyard. His interest in the human relationship with nature led him to study biology at Bethel College, Indiana to become a scientist. For his 2018 REU research project, he worked with Dr. Rene Price and Shimelis Dessu, looking at ground and surface water interaction with mangroves by using YSI probes to monitor the quality and behavior of the water and understand the water flow system.
