Eric Moody

PhD, Director of Research and Evaluation, Wyoming Institute for Disabilities 

Eric J. Moody, Ph.D., is the Associate Director and a Research Professor at the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND). He received his doctorate in Social Psychology and Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Denver in 2007. The focus of his research there was on shared interpersonal emotions and psychophysiology. Midway through his training, he became interested in autism and how the basic psychological mechanisms he was studying are related to the autism phenotype. This interest led him to collaborate with JFK Partners, a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD), and a post-doctoral fellowship in autism assessment and public health/epidemiology at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus. Following this postdoc, he joined the Faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and expanded his research to include public health, community-based participatory research, and health disparities. Dr. Moody joined the University of Wyoming, College of Health Sciences in 2018 as the Director of Research and Evaluation for WIND.
