About

Abigail Fagan received her Ph.D. in Sociology University of Colorado in 2001. Her research focuses on the etiology and prevention of juvenile delinquency and drug use, with an emphasis on examining the ways in which scientific advances can be successfully translated into effective crime and delinquency prevention practices. Dr. Fagan has been a Principal Investigator on research funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute of Justice to study the role of victimization experiences and community influences on juvenile offending. She has worked on the Blueprints for Violence Prevention Initiative and the Community Youth Development Study, both of which seek to assist community agencies and practitioners in identifying and replicating with fidelity effective delinquency prevention programs. Her etiological and applied work has been published in leading journals in criminology, psychology, and public health and shared with scientists, policy makers, and practitioners at conferences and invited presentations. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Criminal Justice Education ranked Dr. Fagan as one of the most productive scholars among Assistant Professors (her rank at the time of the study) in the U.S., measured by the number of published peer-reviewed journal article and citations, H-Index, and m-quotient.
