Holly Atkinson

Research Executive

As a Research Executive, Holly manages projects throughout their entire lifecycle, from inception and research design to mixed-methods analysis, reporting and dissemination. 

Holly’s background – with several years’ combined experience researching and working in the heritage and cultural sectors in the UK, Ghana, and Bahrain, and a PhD in Archaeology – stands her in good stead for the rigor, dedication and attention to detail that any good project needs. During her studies,Holly also completed research-based internships with English Heritage and the North West Film and Sound Archive.

Passionate about cultural heritage, nature, archaeology, and education, since joining MHM Holly has worked on a variety of summative, formative and programme evaluations, concept testing, market appraisals, and membership research, to inform a wide range of clients at home and abroad: including the British Museum, V&A, National Trust, Crafts Council, Turquoise Mountain Trust Jordan, and Media Majlis.

A keen traveller, voracious reader (and bad knitter), Holly is learning to speak Arabic and Spanish.
