Roland S. Moore, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Scientist and Study Director at the Prevention Research Center in Oakland. His Ph.D. was awarded by the Department of Anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Moore's fieldwork sites include a Central Greek community, U.S. factories, restaurants, military bases, Alaska communities and a Southwestern American Indian reservation. His research topics have included gender differences in drinking patterns and hangovers in the workplace. More generally, he is interested in the relationship between employment and alcohol and tobacco consumption patterns and problems, especially among young adults. His most recent research concerns ethnographic evaluations of tobacco policy in California bars, multi-unit housing, and casinos and community level prevention of underage drinking and other drug use in Native American reservations. He is the lead technical assistance provider for Native American grantees in the California Office of Health Equity's California Reducing Disparities Program, Phase II. Methodologically, he uses both ethnographic and survey analysis.
