"A Comparative Analysis of Domestic Violence Shelter Staff Perceptions Regarding Barriers to Services in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the United States" (with Lisa R. Muftić). International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology (2017): 1-20.

Examines whether barriers to service for survivors of domestic violence were similar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The U.S. findings underscore that while citizenship and language barriers were more problematic in the United States, other barriers (e.g. familial, financial, service provider, or other) only minimally varied between countries.

"An Exploratory Analysis of Prosecutorial Attitudes of Sex Trafficking in Bosnia and Herzegovina" (with Lisa R. Muftić and Irma Deljkić). Trends in Organized Crime 19, no. 2 (2016): 175-194.

Surveys prosecutors in Bosnia and Herzegovina to gain a more comprehensive understanding of their attitudes and perception of sex trafficking in the country. Underscores that while some prosecutors held punitive attitudes for victims, most held these attitudes for traffickers and customers.

"A Spatiotemporal Analysis of Arson" (with Matt R. Nobles). Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency 53, no. 1 (2015): 66-92.

Seeks to examine whether or not arson was spatiotemporally clustered in L.A. county. Underscores that arson events, especially those started at night, are clustered in space and time.
