A first-generation college student, Moon earned his doctorate in biology and a master’s in zoology from the University of South Florida. He earned his bachelor’s in biology from Binghamton University, where he graduated cum laude. An award-winning teacher and scholar, Moon has published widely in the fields of coastal ecology and environmental biology. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, Nature Conservancy, Smithsonian Institution Environmental Research Center and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
