BA, Hampshire College, 2011

RESEARCH
Dr. Justin Xavier Moore is an epidemiologist with two specific research interests, which include: 1) examining racial, socioeconomic and geographic disparities in cancer survival and mortality; and 2) examining the association between cancer survivorship and risk of infection and sepsis. He is interested in conducting future research in the prevention of excess cancer deaths and infection-related deaths caused by race, place or social class. Dr. Moore uses a variety of novel epidemiologic methods to examine how community and personal level factors are associated with cancer mortality and sepsis infection. Dr. Moore is skilled in epidemiologic study design and methodology, survival analysis, mediation analysis, complex survey design and methods, geospatial information systems (GIS) analysis, GEE models, and much more.
