Robb Willer is an associate professor of sociology and the author of research suggesting that men with higher levels of testosterone are more likely to feel threatened and act out in the form of masculine overcompensation. The Daily sat down with Willer to discuss the roots of his interests in masculinity studies, his stance on the burgeoning field of men’s studies and what trends in male behavior reveal about the state of the gender.
