Conor is originally from Denver, Colorado, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California studying Neuroscience and Spanish. Conor is interested in native and second language acquisition. He’s also interested in how we experience music, and how it’s related to (and distinct from) spoken language. Also, while he’s here, he’d like to translate sliding down a mountain to riding a wave.
