John M. de Castro

John M. de Castro Department of Psychology and Philosophy Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, USA


John M. de Castro, a specialist on human eating habits, has been selected as the new dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Sam Houston State University. De Castro will take over in mid-summer from Terry Thibodeaux, who has served as interim dean of the college since April 2004, when it was carved out of the College of Arts and Sciences. Now professor and chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Texas at El Paso, de Castro taught and did research at Georgia State University from 1974 until August 2003, when he took his present position. His degrees include a bachelor of arts in psychology from Northeastern University (1969), and master's (1973) and Ph. D. (1974) in psychology from the University of Massachusetts. He also worked for Sylvania Electronic Systems in 1969-70. De Castro started out by researching the eating patterns of rats. In 1988 he began applying this knowledge to humans. He is perhaps best known for his discoveries relating to the social facilitation of eating.
