The Robin Walker Fellowship
The Robin Walker Fellowship in Computer Science has been endowed at £600,000 to produce an annual amount that covers the cost of a senior University Teaching Officer in the Department of Computer Science & Technology to teach at Queens’.
This Fellowship was endowed in 2020 by the generous donations of 20 alumni and friends of Queens.
'I’m greatly honoured and touched by this initiative to found a Fellowship in my name. But, I cannot claim all the credit for the strong position that Queens’ holds in Computer Science at Cambridge today. Other Fellows have played their part too: Jinny Crum-Jones, Tom Clarke, Nick Benton.'
