Biography

Conner is a PhD student in Computational and Systems Biology. He is interested in applying single-cell genomics and computational methods to better understand infectious diseases. Conner grew up in the rainy and forested suburbs of Seattle, before moving to warmer climes to complete his undergraduate studies at Pomona College in Southern California. He obtained his bachelor’s in Chemistry but completed extensive coursework in mathematics and computer science. At the end of his undergraduate he moved to the UK to further his computational skills by completing a masters degree in computational biology at the University of Cambridge. Afterwards, he decided to see what the eastern coast of the US is all about and started his PhD at MIT. Thanks to his west coast upbringing, Conner loves the outdoors. His favorite activities include hiking, backpacking, climbing, running, biking, cooking, and writing.
