Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology
United States of America
Erin Moore earned her Ph.D. in an interdisciplinary program that emphasized coursework in both health psychology and education, thus learning both psychology content and how to teach it. She began working as an instructor while a doctoral student and has loved teaching since her first class (which was Theories and Research in Personality). She started teaching at Stetson in Fall 2013 and has taught a variety of courses in the department. An avid fan of zombie movies and television shows, she incorporated her love of the walking dead into a junior seminar that engages students in learning about the spread of diseases, emergency preparedness, and ethical decision-making, among other topics. She has conducted research primarily in the area of health promotion but has also supported students as a mentor in research a variety of topics, including volunteering behavior, participants' reactions to research participation, and students' emergency preparedness. She travels with students to the Southeastern Psychological Association (SEPA) conference each year to present research.
