Holly initially joined the Department of Health Sciences in 2003 and has since gained research experience using a range of methodologies, including quantitative analyses, health economics, as well as qualitative approaches.
For her doctoral work, Holly explored the risk factors for women having a caesarean section or an instrumental birth in the UK, using multivariable techniques to analyse data from the Millennium Cohort study.
In 2017 Holly became a qualified midwife and has recently specialised in digital midwifery. She now works in both a midwife and research capacity.
Holly's research interests include pregnancy and childbirth; maternity services, addictions; and quality of life.
