Travis Nelson

Assistant Professor of Political Science

Travis Nelson, Assistant Professor of Political Science, comes to UVM from the Midwest. He just completed his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and before that received his B.A. from St. Olaf College in Minnesota.

Dr. Nelson's dissertation investigated military interventions directed at regime change in a target state and argued, among other things,that these interventions tend to have a particularly regional focus. His next project will likely explore the interventionary elements of international disaster relief. While at UVM, Dr. Nelson's teaching interests include security affairs, international organizations and cooperation, and American foreign policy.
