Andrew Davis is a sociologist who studies politics, violence, law, culture and crime, often with a global focus. His approach to studying the social world involves examining states, organizations and other actors from a macro perspective – asking what factors structure consequential behaviors. His work often uses a variety of methodological approaches including advanced statistical regression-based techniques, network analysis and computational text analysis. His research has been published in a wide range of peer-reviewed journals that cross disciplinary subfields – among them being the British Journal of Sociology, British Journal of Criminology, Social Science Research; Poetics; Punishment and Society; and International Journal of Comparative Sociology.
His research has received awards from American Sociological Association’s Section on Human Rights (2019) and the Section on Peace, War, and Social Conflict (2017). His work has also received recognition from the American Society of Criminology’s Division on International Criminology (2018).
