Quality in Social Services

As Director, Tami has built a research department that harnesses the individual strengths of the researchers to maximize the effectiveness of each project.  She is an expert in the development of quality and regulatory measurement systems for the public and social services sector.

Over the years at MJB, Tami has focused on the importance of “research translation”—helping decision makers and field professionals understand research findings so as to make better and more informed decisions in their work.  To that end, Tami was a member of the University of Chicago’s International Working Group on the Effective Dissemination of Research, a collaboration that resulted in the publication of Research for Action: Cross-National Perspectives on Connecting Knowledge, Policy, and Practice for Children.

Prior to joining MJB, Tami worked at the Guttman Institute for Applied Social Research for 12 years. She also has taught at Hebrew University and the University of Connecticut.

Tami holds a BA cum laude in Behavioral Sciences from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, and an MA cum laude and PhD in Communications and Journalism from the Hebrew University.
