Alexander C. Tsai, M.D., Ph.D. is a board-certified psychiatrist, Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital, and Honorary Lecturer at the Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Uganda.

His U.S. domestic research program examines population mental health in the context of structural drivers such as immigration policy and racial disparities in police use of deadly force. Dr. Tsai serves as a Specialty Consulting Editor for PLOS Medicine and is on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes and the Journal of Global Health.
