Pia Kontos, PhD., is a research scientist at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute – University Health Network and Assistant Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. Her work on aging takes its bearings from the humanities, philosophy, and the social sciences. Her current research focuses on bridging the work she does on selfhood in Alzheimer’s disease with clinical practice in dementia care. She relies on research-based theatre, improvisational drama, and film as innovative strategies to make her research meaningful and relevant to health care practitioners. Recent publications of hers appear in a number of journals: The Gerontologist; The Journals of Gerontology Series B: Social Sciences; Dementia: The International Journal of Social Research and Practice; Implementation Science; and Sociology of Health and Illness. She has also contributed to several edited books: Old Age and Agency; Ageing and Place: Perspectives, Policy, Practice; Thinking About Dementia: Culture, Loss and the Anthropology of Senility; and Contesting Aging and Loss.
