Professor Holland earned her B.A. in Psychology at Fairfield University and her Ph.D. in Psychology at Boston College.  As a graduate student, Professor Holland’s research focused on the interactions between cognition and emotion.  Her dissertation work used behavioral and neuroimaging methodologies to explore how our attempts to regulate the emotions associated with autobiographical experiences influence our memories for those events.

The close one-on-one mentoring that Professor Holland received from her undergraduate professors was integral to her academic development and inspired her commitment to excellence in higher education.  As a teacher, Professor Holland seeks to instill in her students a deep appreciation for the scientific methods used in psychology, as well as for how psychological principles apply to their own lives.
