Dr. Victoria Holt is an epidemiologist who focuses on women’s reproductive health, reproductive epidemiology and intimate-partner violence. Areas of her research include the impact of oral contraceptive use on ovarian cyst formation; the epidemiology of adenomyosis (a non-life-threatening but painful condition in which the endometrium, or inner lining of the uterus, breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus), and the reproductive and contraceptive risk factors of endometriosis. She also researches ectopic pregnancy rates and the association between body mass index and oral-contraceptive failure. Her work in intimate- partner violence includes the effects of protection orders and the justice system’s response to violence on the likelihood of subsequent violence and injury.
