Upon completing his four-year enlistment, he earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics from Wake Forest University, a Master of Science in physics from the University of Virginia, and a Doctor of Philosophy in physics from the University of Virginia. While obtaining his doctorate, he served as a research associate at the University of Virginia for two years.

He is most proud of his work on an experiment at a nuclear power plant with an instrument which he developed alongside his team to measure the power shape in the reactor. Taking nine years to develop the instrument to be as accurate as possible, it is still in use today. As a testament to his professional success, Dr. Warren received the IR 100 Award in 1984.
