The Friedman School pursues cutting-edge research and education from cell to society, including in molecular nutrition, human metabolism, population studies, clinical trials, nutrition interventions and behavior change, communication, food systems and sustainability, global food insecurity, humanitarian crises, and food economics and policy.
Dr. Moore is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy within the Division of Nutrition Interventions, Communication, and Behavior Change at Tufts University and a Post-Doctoral Scholar within the Department of Civil Society and Community Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
At Tufts University, he works with the Catalyzing Communities team, a project of the ChildObesity180 initiative, to advance their mission and impact of scaling evidence-based obesity prevention strategies nationwide. He leads research on its unique, community-based systems dynamics approach to assess whether and how local, tailored health interventions can scale across nine partner communities. Dr. Moore also co-leads a health equity and community-engaged research fellowship for undergraduate and graduate students on the project.
Dr. Moore is committed to working with diverse communities to understand collaborative initiatives and their efforts to change individual behavior and to benefit their surrounding communities, particularly in the areas of health, mental health, and education. His work lies at the intersection of research, evaluation, practice, and advocacy, integrating complex systems science techniques with community-based research approaches in both domestic and international projects. His current focus is on developing and evaluating a community-based system dynamics intervention that promotes the use of research evidence to improve sexual and gender minority health outcomes.
Dr. Moore earned his PhD in Civil Society and Community Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a BS in Premedical Biology and a MS in Counseling at Southern Methodist University. Prior to being hired to Tufts University, Dr. Moore was an Evaluation Specialist at the Center on Research and Evaluation at Southern Methodist University.
