Research Interests

Dr. Moore is a cancer epidemiologist with vast skills in biostatistics, epidemiology, database design, geographic information systems (GIS), mediation analysis and cancer prevention and control. His prior research includes examining racial, socioeconomic and geographic disparities in cancer survival and mortality; and exploring the association between cancer survivorship and risk of infection and sepsis. Dr. Moore’s work identified that for Black and Hispanic women, place matters as there are distinct clusters of counties with high mortality for these women. Dr. Moore’s current research interests lie in understanding the effects of race and place (e.g., social, psychosocial, and built environment) on determinants of breast cancer including; mammographic density, life-course stress, and DNA methylation.
