Holly's research interests have focused on identifying how marine communities of endangered mammals, birds, and fishes, cope with a changing environment by relying on facilitative interactions with each other. This means that the conservation and management of one mesopredator depends not only on the availability of prey and suitable habitat, but also on the ecology of other mesopredators. Her work involves quantitatively rigorous approaches to modeling the dynamic processes that drive the modification of seabird foraging strategies. The applications of this research span new frontiers of conservation, with respect to offshore energy exploration, overfishing, and climate change.
