As an academic, Karan’s research interests in the challenge of dementia care, particularly within ethnic minority groups have spanned over a decade. Her doctoral study researched experiences of caring for a family member with dementia for Sikhs living in Wolverhampton of the UK. This biographical study highlighted challenges with access to, and experience of, health and social care services in the UK – with such experiences being strongly linked to their experiences as migrants in the UK. She has since developed cultural competency training for healthcare professionals and continued working on a number of research projects to further develop this area.
