We are pleased to announce that Meredith Dank has joined the NYU Marron Institute as a Research Professor. Dank’s Human Exploitation and Resilience initiative will document and elevate the voices of the exploited and the vulnerable, highlighting their resilience and perseverance through rigorous, empirical research. Her initiative has several ongoing studies, focused on human trafficking—both labor and sex trafficking—as well as gender-based violence. She has served as principal investigator for nearly two dozen human-trafficking studies, funded by federal agencies (including the Justice Department, State Department, and HHS) and private foundations. Prior to joining NYU Marron, Dank was a Research Professor at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where she also earned a Ph.D. in criminal justice.
