Professor Walker’s enduring academic connection with Royal Holloway began in 1966 and he successfully completed his BSc in Mathematics, before becoming the second PhD student to be supervised by Professor Fred Piper, who founded the ISG with which Professor Walker was to have a lifelong association. He obtained his PhD in 1973.
Throughout his career in industry, Professor Walker maintained his keen interest for academic research and for many years he held the Vodafone chair as Professor of Telecommunications at Royal Holloway, as part of the ISG.
