Self-Exciting Point Process Modeling of Crime
Highly clustered event sequences are observed in certain types of crime data, such as burglary and gang violence, due to crime-specific patterns of criminal behavior. Similar clustering patterns areExpand

Traveling to Violence: The Case for a Mobility-Based Spatial Typology of Homicide
According to routine activities theory, crime is the result of an intersection between victims and offenders in both time and space. We introduce a spatial typology that identifies five combinationsExpand
