Dr Holly Gwyther

Formerly at Lancaster University

Research overview

My research focuses on healthy ageing and the psychological effects of major life events on health and risk behaviour, mobility and wellbeing. I have expertise in mixed-design studies and conduct both advanced quantitative analysis and qualitative research. I also have expertise in critical analysis and evidence synthesis including meta-analysis, systematic reviews and realist reviews. 

My previous research experience includes: an EU grant ‘FOCUS’ which explored issues relating to the screening and management of frailty; an academic evaluation of the New Dynamics of Ageing programme; and an exploration of the affective attitudes (emotions) relating to driving. Prior to that I worked for the Health and Safety Executive for ten years as an HM Inspector of Health and Safety.
