Jordan W. Moon


I'm a research fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST). I completed my PhD in social psychology at Arizona State University.

Most of my research is focused on how people interact with cultural systems such as religion and morality in ways that advance their interests or allow them to mitigate threats, and how this results in differences across cultures. I'm also interested in social perception, stereotyping, and prejudice, especially as they relate to religion and morality.

With funding from the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc., I am currently examining the effects of religious fasting on prosocial behavior and human flourishing.
