Tammy heads a small team offering support on programmatic design, evaluation, data and analytics, training and knowledge management related to peacebuilding at the UN Secretary-General’s Peacebuilding Fund (PBF). Tammy’s professional life has been divided between international development, humanitarian action and peacebuilding on the one hand, and academic research on the other. Before joining the PBF, Tammy served in a number of positions in UNICEF, including as senior advisor for Peacebuilding and Recovery in New York and chief of social policy and M&E in UNICEF’s Yemen Country Office. Prior to joining the UN in 2009, she was an assistant professor of sociology at SUNY Stony Brook, with a research agenda, focused on conflict and post-conflict settings, gender and institution building, and was a research fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Tammy’s research interests reflect work in her early career on economic and political transitions in the Balkans.
