David Moore

Dr. David Moore is an associate professor in residence in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego and a faculty member of the SDSU/UC San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. He received his PhD in clinical psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology jointly from San Diego State University and UC San Diego.

Moore's research focuses on the neuropsychological and everyday functioning difficulties of individuals with HIV infection. One of his research foci is the neurocognitive complication 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 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.

  • Interaction between neurocognitive functions and comorbid disorders (e.g. HIV)
  • Neuropsychology
