Professor Holbrook's research is in two areas. She studies how people's attitudes and beliefs are formed and change over time, and how these beliefs influence behavior, particularly in the realm of political issues and activism. She also studies how respondents to surveys think about and respond to the request to be surveyed and specific survey questions. Her teaching is primarily in the areas of research methods, particularly how to design and conduct survey research.
