Holly is a PhD Researcher at PSI. She holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Reading and an MA in Planning and Sustainability from Kingston University. Holly has worked as a town planner in various local authorities within London and the south-east. Most recently, she has been working for the Greater London Authority, to better embed health and social infrastructure considerations into the London-wide planning policies.
Holly’s research is focused on children in built-environment and through her research she plans to explore the impact that a child’s neighbourhood can have on children’s health and well-being. Consideration will be given to both the design of the place and the social norms and perceptions that are prevalent within it.
