Rob Walton

DPhil candidate

Rob Walton is a DPhil student in the Engineering Science department at the University of Oxford and part of Professor David De Roure’s research group at the Oxford e-Research Centre. Interested in complex systems and process philosophy, he hopes that his efforts to understand Alfred Whitehead’s ‘philosophy of organism’ will prove worthwhile.

In his last job, Rob looked after the data acquisition software group at Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron facility just south of Oxford. Prior to this he worked in wireless telecommunication research in Calgary, Canada.
