Connor is an MS student whose research is focused on the demographics and distribution of early-successional birds in Ohio. Connor is primarily interested in the relationship between habitat characteristics and bird distributions, especially in human-dominated landscapes, and how climate change may alter these distributions. In addition, Connor is heavily interested in the human dimensions of bird conservation, and has been involved with multiple social science projects.
