Michael K. Miller is an Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at George Washington University. His research interests combine comparative politics, formal and quantitative methodology, and political economy, with a focus on democratization and autocratic elections.

His work has appeared in American Journal of Political Science, British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and elsewhere.
