Dr. Moore is an Associate Professor in the UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry and a faculty member of the SDSU/UC San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. He received his Ph.D in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology jointly from San Diego State University and UC San Diego.

His research focuses on the neuropsychological and everyday functioning difficulties of individuals with HIV infection. One of his primary research foci is examining the neurocognitive complications associated with HIV infection and other comorbid disorders (e.g., psychiatric and substance use disorders) and how neurocognitive difficulties relate to everyday functioning. In addition, he is also interested in the intersection of HIV and aging, and in identifying factors associated with successfully aging with HIV infection. Much of his recent work has focused on developing innovative, personalized, scalable text messaging interventions to improve antiretroviral medication adherence.
