Post Doctoral Research Scientist, Heilbrunn Department of Population & Family Health at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health
Erin V. Moore is a postdoctoral research scientist in the Heilbrunn Department of Population & Family Health at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health. A, sociocultural and medical anthropologist, Moore’s research focuses on the role of gender and sexuality in international development and global health at multiple scales – from global intervention campaigns to national policy and program implementation to the lives of girls and women. Her multi-sited research has taken her from United Nations to NGO offices around the world to the slums of Kampala, Uganda’s capital city, where she has been working intensively with a cohort of young women and their families since 2012. At Mailman, Moore joins an interdisciplinary team of researchers investigating how social transitions to adulthood shape HIV/AIDS risk in Rakai, a rural district in Uganda. Moore’s research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, the Society for Psychological Anthropology, the Society for Research on Adolescence, the Buffett Institute for Global Studies at Northwestern, and the American Association for University Women, among others. She received her PhD from the University of Chicago in 2016.
