Mr Christoph Heuser is a Teaching Fellow, Senior Tutor & Postgraduate Research Student within Ageing & Gerontology at the University of Southampton.

I joined the Department of Gerontology at the University of Southampton in October 2020. Here, I am working as a Teaching Fellow and acting as Senior Tutor for the department. I am also contributing to the postgraduate programmes in the Department of Gerontology, and I coordinate the PGT Skills sessions for new MSc students. In September 2020, I started my PhD in Gerontology, focusing on depression and future-time perspective in later life.

Besides my role at the Department of Gerontology here in Southampton, I work as a guest lecturer for different Universities, focusing on Gerontology and Social Psychology. Additionally, I act as Book Review Editor for the Journal Ageing & Society and as treasurer for the Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA).
