Tamar is an applied anthropologist whose work focuses on the role of stigma in public health practice and policy-making. Her research has examined health inequities by considering the intersections between health-related stigma (e.g. the stigma of being a smoker) and other social identity stigmas (e.g. ethnicity, social class, and/or gender). Tamar is committed to research that draws attention to the structures within which health practices are embedded and highlights the social processes that lead to inequities in health.

She holds a DrPH from the University of California, Berkeley, where she occasionally guest lectures and has taught Introduction to Qualitative Methods, an M.A.A. in Applied Anthropology from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a B.A. from the University of Texas, Austin. Tamar’s research has been funded by the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program and both the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism at the National Institutes of Health.
