Dr. Warner’s research efforts have focused on advanced instrumentation and new methods of analysis applied to human-computer interaction. Dr. Warner has mapped interactive technologies to the human nervous system's capacity to assimilate and respond to information, which will fundamentally change the way that humans interact with information systems. His recent work focuses on delivering inexpensive comms, visualization, and decision support systems for responders in difficult settings such as refugee camps, disaster areas, and conflict zones.
