Justin Tatch Moore is an associate professor of mathematics at Cornell University. His research concerns the combinatorics of uncountable sets and its applications in mathematics.

He received his Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Stevo Todorcevic. In 2006, he won first prize in the Young Scholars competition celebrating the Godel Centenary.

He is one of the organizers of the fall 2012 Thematic Program in Forcing and its Applications at the Fields Institute.
