Zach Warner have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Political and Legal Analytics at Cardiff University's School of Law and Politics. From August 2021, he will be an Assistant Professor of Political Science & Data Science at Purdue University's Department of Political Science. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018.

His research is organized around two themes: institutional design and representation. His book project examines why so many countries around the world have created new districts, states, and other subnational units since 1960, with a focus on Nigeria. His other work examines why the poor are underrepresented relative to the rich among the world's democracies. Both themes use, improve, and develop new quantitative and computational methods.
