About Dr. Moore
Dr. Ashlee A. Moore has a Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science with a concentration in Psychiatric, Behavioral, and Statistical Genetics from Virginia Commonwealth University. Broadly, Dr. Moore is interested in the genetic and environmental factors underlying abnormal child psychology. She is especially interested in the development of callous-unemotional and psychopathic traits. Dr. Moore's research and training are inherently interdisciplinary, pulling from psychology, genetics, statistics, physiology, and neuroscience.
Currently, Dr. Moore is studying the associations between callous-unemotional traits, physiological startle response, and neuroanatomy. She also uses twins to untangle the shared genetic underpinnings of these traits. In the future, she hopes to extend her research program to include the study of modifiable environmental factors to better understand how individuals overcome biological risk for psychopathic traits.
Dr. Moore is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the State University of New York at Oswego where she directs the GaP (Genetics and Psychophysiology) lab. If you are a student interested in performing research with Dr. Moore, please click on the 'GaP lab' tab at the top of this website.
