Prof. Dr. Graham Moore is a Professor in the School of Social Sciences with roles across a range of research investments and infrastructures, including the Centre for Development Evaluation Complexity and Implementation in Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer) funded by Health & Care Research Wales, the Wolfson Centre for Young People's Mental Health, and a UKPRP funded consortium focused on commercial determinants of health and health inequalities (Shaping Public hEalth poliCies To Reduce ineqUalities and harM; SPECTRUM).

His substantive research interests are in health inequalities, primarily focused on childhood and adolescence. This includes a focus on equity impacts of universal interventions, and on interventions which aim to reduce inequality by targeting population subgroups (e.g. children from poorer backgrounds, children exposed to domestic violence, children experiencing local authority care, or neurodiverse children and young people). Alongside a range of work focused on child and adolescent mental health, as a major contributor to the inter-generational reproduction of inequality, Dr. Moore also has a strong track record in research on young people's tobacco use and tobacco policy.

Methodologically, Dr. Moore has an international reputation in innovation in evaluating social intervention, having led the development and authorship of highly cited MRC guidance for process evaluation, and having been a co-PI and lead author for MRC-NIHR funded guidance on adapting interventions to new contexts. Both are published as Research Methods and Reporting Articles in The BMJ. As programme lead for DECIPHer's methods programme from 2013-19, Dr Moore led a series of established methodology short courses, delivered on five continents to date.
