Dr. Moore rejoined the Institute on Community integration in 2021 after spending three previous years at the Institute from 2010-2013. He is a Licensed Psychologist in Minnesota and a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst - Doctoral. He has been in the fields of Positive Behavior Support, Applied Behavior Analysis, and behavioral psychology for 25 years in direct service, staff development, and capacity building roles in a variety of settings (home, community, vocational, residential, academic), and has worked on systems change and policy initiatives in pursuit of better lives for people with disabilities.

Dr. Moore’s clinical, research, and systems change approaches have roots in behavior analysis and over time incorporated concepts and principles from PBS, positive psychology, person and family centered practice, trauma informed practice, and contextual behavior science​.

His research interests are grounded in questions about the collective influence of socio-cultural, environmental, biological, psychiatric, and quality of life variables with respect to such phenomena as treatment adherence, health behavior, and behaviors that limit quality of life. His peer-reviewed research is published in a range of outlets.

Dr. Moore’s volunteer service has included a term on the Board of Directors for the Association for Positive Behavior Support, the leadership team of the Home and Community PBS Network, and the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Northland Association for Behavior Analysis. He continues ongoing service on the leadership team of the Minnesota PBS Network.
