PhD, Criminal Justice, Georgia State University
Cohort Four Fellow
Erin Marsh is currently a doctoral student in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Georgia State University. She received a master's degree in criminal justice and criminology at Georgia State University and a bachelor's degree in psychology and a certificate in sociology from Georgia Institute of Technology. Ms. Marsh's research interests center around victimization of females and specifically examining the complex nature and treatment of human trafficking victims by the criminal justice system. She recently completed a project in connection with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to survey law enforcement officers throughout the state of Georgia to quantify the cases of human trafficking the criminal justice system is currently addressing. Her dissertation strives to get at situations of human trafficking that are failing to be identified as such by law enforcement to help fill the gap between the estimates of the number of human trafficking victims and the actual documented cases in the state of Georgia.
