Dr. Holland obtained her Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 1988 followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University with Drs. Mooney and Vitousek. She has worked in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division at the National Center for Atmospheric Research since 1989, focusing on linkages between atmospheric chemistry and terrestrial ecosystems. She has combined modeling and measurements to examine interactions between the terrestrial carbon and nitrogen cycles, ranging from initial endeavors in microbiology to her current focus on global and regional biogeochemistry.

Dr. Holland directed the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Soils and Global Change held this past summer, was an associate editor for the Journal of Geophysical Research, a Fellow with both the Natural Resources Ecology Laboratory (Colorado State University), and the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Ecology (University of Colorado), and serves on a number of steering committees including NCAR's SOAR (Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research) program which provides research opportunities to minority students. Dr. Holland is a member of the graduate faculty at two Colorado Universities: Colorado State University and the University of Colorado, and has also worked with students from Stanford University, the University of California-Berkeley, Cornell University, and the University of New Hampshire.
