Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Cheuk Chi (George) Tam has a Ph.D. and M.S. in Health Psychology, as well as a M.A. with a concentration in Developmental and Counseling Psychology. His research is dedicated to developing, delivering, and evaluating psychosocial-theory-based interventions (e.g., Resilience) among vulnerable populations, including people living with HIV/AIDS.

As a health psychologist, Dr. Tam expanded his research interests to the field of prescription drug/opioid misuse since 2015. His current research focuses on (1) technology-based psychosocial intervention for prescription drug misuse and biopsychosocial influences on prescription drug misuse; (2) Psychological and behavioral aspects of COVID-19; (3) Resilience-based intervention to mitigate HIV-related stigma and its influences in people living with HIV.

He is recently funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse to develop a theory-based social media intervention aimed at promoting psychosocial and behavioral skills to reduce the risk for non-medical use of prescription opioids among young adults in the United States.
