Nicholas G. Napolio is broadly interested in political institutions, bureaucracy, and intergovernmental relations. Specifically, he studies the political ramifications of institutional structures and procedures, and how the vertically and horizontally fragmented American political system enables or constrains elite behavior.

His research has been published in the Journal of Political Institutions and Political Economy; Politics, Groups, and Identities; and State Politics & Policy Quarterly.
