Dr. Tamar Green was trained as a child psychiatrist at the Nes-Ziyyona - Beer Yaakov Mental Health Center, affiliated to Tel Aviv University in Israel. As a clinician she had extensive opportunities to work with children with a range of mental disorders. In parallel to her clinical work she joined the Behavioral Neurogenetics Clinic at Sheba Medical Center, Israel and began conducting neurogenetics research with specific focus on velocardiofacial syndrome and Williams syndrome. Her clinical background has fostered her interest in research questions that have immediate relevance to improving the quality of life of children who suffer from psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. In September 2012, she joined the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University working under the mentorship of Dr. Allan Reiss.
In her current research, she is studying the brain structure and function of girls who suffer from Turner syndrome.Her main research focuses on attention and executive function (a cognitive domain underlying the ability to plan, organize and maintain attention) deficits in Turner Syndrome and other neurogenetic syndromes.
