Comparative Politics

Research Summary

Professor Warner’s research focuses on comparative politics and methodology. His book project examines why countries create new subnational governments, with a particular focus on Nigerian politics. His most recently published papers study why the poor are underrepresented relative to the rich among the world's democracies. As a data scientist, Professor Warner is also interested in developing and applying new methods to study political phenomena, particularly as they relate to survey research and machine learning.
