Research Interests

Dr. Moore is an epidemiologist with vast skills in biostatistics, epidemiology, database design, geographic information systems (GIS), mediation analysis and cancer prevention and control. Dr. Moore joined Augusta University in 2019 as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Epidemiology, Department of Population Health Sciences (DPHS). Dr. Moore received his PhD in Epidemiology from University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health followed by his post-doctoral training under the National Institutes of Health funded T32 Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program at Washington University in Saint Louis School of Medicine. Dr. Moore’s research explores the intersection between race (including effects of racism) and place (social and built environment) on various health outcomes including cancer and infectious diseases. Dr. Moore’s work delineated that place matters for African American, Hispanic, and rural populations characterized by hot spots of excess mortality from breast cancer, lung cancer, early-onset colorectal cancer, sepsis, and COVID-19. Dr. Moore’s current research interests lie in understanding the effects of race and place on determinants of breast cancer including; breast cancer screening, mammographic density, life-course stress, and DNA methylation.

Dr. Moore currently serves as principal investigator of the Geographic and Racial Disparities in Mammography Screening and Barriers to Receiving Care study funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (K01MD015304-01).
