Time in Larsen Lab: 2010-2011
Basic Project Description: Conor was one of my first research students after starting at the College of Charleston. Conor's main work in the lab was toward making a raindrop simulator -- a device to try to generate realistic-sized raindrops to use to calibrate disdrometers. (I still hope to resurrect his setup at some point after we're established back in the new(old) science building).

Conor defended his Ph.D. in September 2018. When I asked him about what else was new, he sent me the following (he said it was ok to include this):

"I need to wrap up edits on the dissertation, and I really would like to publish this most recent work, but I am hoping to get that done in the next few months. After that my girlfriend and I want to travel for a bit. She is likely going to quit her job or go part time, while we travel. After that, I want to get into industry somehow, either maybe coastal engineering, or recently I have been kicking around a few ideas for some novel(ish) marine-related electronics that it may be fun to try to build. First, travel to clear my head, then try out some ideas."
