Dr Warner is a lecturer in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Southampton. He has a background in musculoskeletal biomechanics, with a particular focus on the shoulder and upper, where his research aims to understand the biomechanics mechanisms of joint dysfunction and injury. 

His research has encompassed understanding the effect of neuromuscular exercises on improving movement dysfunction, the effect of trunk control in recovery following stroke, movement quality in military personnel and understanding the changes in mechanical properties of muscle in microgravity.
