  • Connor Dacey, Ph.D. Student, Disaster Science & Management

    Ph.D. Student, Disaster Science & Management
    University of Delaware
    Newark, DE 19716


    My name is Connor Dacey and I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Disaster Science and Management program at the University of Delaware.  I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2015 from the Florida State University with a B.S. degree in meteorology with minors in mathematics and physics.   During my time at FSU, I had the privilege of becoming both a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Ernest F. Hollings Scholar and Truman Scholarship Finalist.  Once I graduated, I went on to receive a M.S. degree in 2017 in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the advisement of Dr. Jonathan Martin, where I completed my thesis titled: “A Multi-Scale Dynamical Diagnosis of the South-Central U.S. Flood of March 2016.”  In addition to my passion for meteorology, I discovered that I also have interests in subjects such as homeland security, intelligence, environmental and energy policy, and emergency management.  Thus, I decided to pursue an advanced degree in the Disaster Science and Management program at UD to help blend together all of my interests. My goal is to one day work as an emergency manager for FEMA with expertise in natural disaster planning and response, and also as a type of liaison to the National Weather Service in times of crisis or need. In my free time, you can catch me cheering on my Noles and Patriots during football season and the Badgers during college basketball season (though, I also cheer for the Badgers during football season, just not as much as my Noles!). I am a HUGE FSU football fan! GO NOLES!  I also enjoy the beach, being on the water, and storm chasing during the severe weather seasons.
