Victor Perez is an associate professor of sociology with
specializations in environmental justice, health & illness, and the
sociology of risk. He is trained in quantitative survey research and
has developed skills in mixed-methods research approaches in
recent years, including field observations and focus groups. A
unifying theme throughout his career is the entwined configuration of
health, risk, and society, focusing on environmental and health issues
through a social constructionist and social justice
lens. Currently, his research uses a mixed-methods approach to examine
perceptions of historic contaminants and sea-level rise in an
impoverished area in South Wilmington, DE, where he is working with an
interdisciplinary team that is evaluating levels of
historic contaminants and hypothesizing their mobility through water
inundation. Victor uses geo-spatial mapping to teach environmental
justice and risk issues, and incorporates his research into
his teaching. Currently, he is formulating a project to examine
how social conditions facilitate successful adaptive migration from
climate change impacts in local DE communities.
Entering his 12th year as a faculty member in the Department of
Sociology and Criminal Justice at UD, Victor regularly teaches
introductory sociology (Honors and non-Honors), and taught quantitative
sociological research methods/social statistics/data analysis
consistently for 8 years. Recently, in addition to introductory
sociology, he has focused on teaching courses that he has created,
including Sociology of Diagnosis and Environment and Health. Recently,
Victor has also developed and taught an online version
of sociological research methods and statistics. As a faculty
affiliate of both the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) and the
Disaster Research Center (DRC), he contributes to numerous initiatives
and offices around campus, including service on the
university’s Institutional Review Board.
