Dr. Warner’s work explores how social structures and practices create and reinforce inequality across the life course.  He looks at individual transitions (and the trajectories in which they are embedded) and their cumulative (both additive and interactive) effect at the population level to illuminate the structural influences on these transitions. His  research is concerned with two broad areas of substantive inquiry—Work & Retirement and Health & Disability.
