Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Cheuk Chi (George) Tam earned his Ph.​D.​ and M.​S.​ in Health Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University and a M.​A.​ in Developmental and Counseling Psychology from Beijing Normal University. He has been dedicated into developing, delivering, and evaluating psychosocial-theory-based interventions (e.​g.​, Resilience) among vulnerable population and 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. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
