    Dr. Moore received his doctorate from the SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology. After completing his clinical internship at the West Los Angeles VA, he returned to UCSD for a post-doctoral fellowship focusing on individuals with serious mental illness. Currently, he is a licensed clinical psychologist and an Associate Professor conducting research at the HIV Neurobehavioral Research Program (HNRP). He focuses on neurocognitive impairment and daily functioning difficulty among persons with co-occurring HIV infection, serious mental illness, and substance use disorders. He has a particularly interest in technological interventions to improve medication adherence. Dr. Moore is also a faculty member of the SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.

    Research Interests

    Dr. Moore’s research focuses on the neuropsychological and everyday functioning difficulties of individuals with HIV infection He is a Principal Investigator on several ongoing HIV-related research studies that are supported by NIMH, NIDA, and the California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP). 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, Dr. Moore has a keen interest 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.
