"Dr. Warrener’s research focuses on the evolution of the human musculoskeletal system using biomechanical techniques to assess how variation in physical structure affects locomotor performance. She is specifically interested in the human pelvis and how its unique anatomy impacts both locomotion and human birth. Dr. Warrener’s research has been published in PNAS, PLOS ONE, The Anatomical Record and other peer-reviewed journals and has also been featured in the BBC documentary “What Makes Us Human” and on NPR."
