Dr. Walker's research is in the field of radiation chemistry, the study of the physical, chemical, and biological effects of high-energy (ionizing) radiations. As our lives are entwined with nuclear radiations for good and not so good reasons it is necessary to try to understand the processes involved when ionizing radiations interact with matter, so that it will be possible to predict, control, and alter their effects.
