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. 

I am currently funded by the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc. to examine the effects of religious fasting. In 2023, I received the Early Career Award from the International Association for the Psychology of Religion.
