Antonia Abbey

Dr. Abbey has always been fascinated by the interplay between the individual and the social environment.  She is broadly interested in understanding the causes of men’s sexual aggression against women, with an emphasis on how alcohol interacts with personality, attitudes, and past experience to increase some men’s likelihood of being sexually aggressive.
