Undergraduate, Graduate, and Post-Doctoral Work

Warren completed his A.B. in Chemistry and Physics at Harvard in 1977. From there he worked with Alexander Pines at University of California, Berkley to complete his M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1979 and 1980, respectively. His thesis was titled “Selectivity in Multiple Quantum Nuclear Magnetic Resonance“. Staying in California, Warren completed a Postdoctoral position with Ahmed Zewail at the California Institute of Technology from 1981-82. During this time, Warren worked on optical coherent transient spectroscopy.
