Dr Katherine Algar-Skaife
Kat is a Dementia Care researcher, passionate about improving the quality of life and well-being of people living with dementia and those who support them, and in particular through the arts. Over the past ten years, she has established an early career track record in the field of dementia care, supervised research staff and students, and won increasing grant capture. Throughout her research career, she has collaborated with organisations such as Age Cymru and Flintshire Social Services to ensure that her research has a real-life impact on people affected by dementia.
Kat’s research interests lie within the intersection of arts, health and social sciences and therefore offers opportunities for creative, collaborative, and applied research methods.
