Bio: Connor earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Maryland where he studied sperm competition in Peromyscus mice with Dr. Heidi Fisher. Working on reproductive biology prompted him to pursue his Master of Science at WSU. He now studies honey bee semen cryopreservation with the intent of finding accessible freezing alternatives to expand germplasm storage and subsequently safeguard rare and endangered honey bee subspecies. After the completion of his degree, he plans to become an Embryologist and provide access to reproduction to bachelors and couples alike.
