Koss' current projects are two randomized trials evaluations of sexual assault prevention: Safer Bars (NIAAA) and E-AAA (a program enhanced with self-defense) (Arnold Ventures Foundation of Canada). She was the principal investigator of the RESTORE Program; the first restorative justice program for sex crimes among adults that was quantitatively evaluated (CDC).
