Walker graduated from UC Riverside, where he was heavily involved in development and external relations. He was an ambassador and advocate that promoted student engagement in community service, undergraduate research, and professional internships. In his own research, Walker investigated neurodevelopmental disorders and received two co-authored publications in peer reviewed journals. After graduating with highest honors, he joined the California Primary Care Association to support workforce development in historically neglected communities. Through these experiences, Walker hopes to merge his background in development, research, and advocacy to be a connection between policy makers and scientists. Walker plays tennis in his free time.
