Associate Professor Tamlin Conner’s research on emotional and physical well-being is distinguished by the use of mobile technology to measure people’s experiences in real-time in the context of daily life.

She is the co-editor of the Handbook of Research Methods for Studying Daily Life (2012), past vice president of the Society for Ambulatory Assessment, and Associate Editor for the journal Emotion.

Tamlin received her BA(Hons) in psychology from the University of Colorado, PhD in social psychology from Boston College, and postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Connecticut Health Center in the United States. She joined the University of Otago in 2008.
