Butch de Castro
My expertise is in Occupational and Environmental Health Sciences and Public Health Nursing. My research focuses on occupational health disparities among immigrant and minority worker populations, with an emphasis on how employment and working conditions contribute to chronic stress. I also investigate how work organization factors influence occupational injury and illness risk among healthcare workers. My methodologic approaches include the use of multi-country longitudinal study designs, stress biomarkers, and large survey datasets. Additionally, my teaching incorporates problem-based learning, community advocacy service projects, and the use of digital media.
