Mohr’s research focuses on cost analysis and accounting practices in government, which includes examining the costs of administering elections in the United States.  His upcoming book project, A Republic if You Can Afford It: How Much Does it Cost to Administer an Election? looks at the cost of conducting elections in the over 8,000 local election jurisdictions around the country. 

A critical piece of his research includes policy lab-style survey and focus group experiments on topics related to budgeting and accounting.   

Before joining the SPAA faculty, Mohr was an associate professor and served as the director of the Public Opinion, Learning, and Sentiment (POLS) Lab, a resource for survey and focus-group experiments in the social sciences at the University of North Carolina Charlotte.  He is also credentialed as a Certified Government Financial Manager ®.
