USQ gerontology expert determined to dispel ageing myths

Bob Knight is an expert in ageing. He spent almost 30 years studying gerontology at the University of Southern California before relocating to the University of Southern Queensland to be an educator and researcher in this field, which continues to grow in importance as Australia's population ages. He has a PhD in clinical psychology from Indiana University and as the author of books including Psychotherapy with Older Adults and the editor of Journals of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences, Knight is firmly across what it means to be a senior from an empirical research perspective. That's why he's keen to set the record straight on a number of misconceptions about what it means to be a senior citizen.
