Pound Lab

Education

  • Ph.D.
  • M.A.
  • B.A.

Research Interests

Warren’s areas of interest include forensic identification and trauma analysis, human variation, and the relationship between the environment and body form. His current project is a collaborative effort with Dr. David Daegling, examining the mechanism of trauma in rib and mandibular fractures. Warren recently co-authored an introductory textbook on forensic anthropology. As both a UF graduate student and faculty member, Warren has been contributing to the Pound Lab’s casework since 1991. He has also assisted with personal identification in mass disasters, and helped to identify, and document war crimes against, the victims of genocide in Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo.
