William Tov
Associate Professor of Psychology
Singapore Management University

William is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Singapore Management University. He completed his doctorate in social and personality psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on the multilevel processes that underlie well-being. At the macro-level, he is interested in cultural similarities and differences in well-being as well as the societal-level conditions associated with well-being. At the micro-level, he examines daily fluctuations in emotion, satisfaction, and meaning—and how these fluctuations are influenced by positive personality traits, memory, and social interactions. He was awarded a Lee Kong Chian Fellowship at SMU in recognition for excellence in research. He currently serves as co-deputy director of the Centre for Research on Successful Ageing (ROSA) which manages the Singapore Life Panel – a high-frequency monthly survey of the well-being of older adults in Singapore. His work has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, and the Journal of Personality.

William will be part of Healthy Ageing session on Day 1.
