Professor Warburton researches corporate finance, corporate governance, financial regulation, and law and finance. His research is largely empirical, and focuses on areas where law and finance intersect. Warburton’s research has attracted significant outside funding, including major research grants from the John Templeton Foundation and the World Bank. His research was recently selected for presentation at the Stanford-Yale Junior Faculty Forum.
Prior to his academic career, he was a banking and finance attorney. In addition to his position at the Whitman School, Warburton also holds an appointment at Syracuse University’s College of Law.
