Linda Mills, executive director of NYU's Center on Violence and Recovery, is a Professor of Social Work, Public Policy and Law at New York University, where she is also Vice Chancellor for Global Programs and University Life. Influenced in part by personal experiences, she has been working on issues related to violence and recovery for more than 20 years. Her theory and research on trauma and recovery challenge traditional boundaries and explore the importance of memory in our everyday lives. The focus of her research ranges from domestic violence to genocide studies. Mills's scholarly work challenges the current paradigms of domestic abuse and develops a new theory and practice based on empirical research for rethinking how we respond to violence in intimate relationships.
Dr. Mills has been published by Princeton University Press, Basic Books, and Cornell and Harvard Law Reviews, and in USA Today and the Los Angeles Times. She has been a blogger for Psychology Today and has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, People, Harper’s & Queen, and Glamour. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense.
