Nelson receives a Bosch Fellowship

April 17, 2017

CISSM Research Scholar Amy Nelson was awarded a Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship to conduct research and education on transatlantic relations in Germany.

While in Germany, Nelson will be researching German military innovation, including new developments and attitudes towards regulation and cooperation.

Nelson has been a research scholar at CISSM since the Fall of 2016 and has been writing a book on arms control that grew out of her doctoral work at the University of California-Berkeley. Since receiving her PhD, Nelson has been a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a policy analyst in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, where she reported violations of the Arms Export Control Act to Congress and worked to align domestic munitions regulations and international treaty obligations with particular emphasis on emerging technologies.

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program provides Americans the opportunity to complete a comprehensive professional development program in Germany. Bosch Fellows act as consultants in their field of expertise at leading public or private institutions in Germany. In addition, they participate in professional seminars, where they travel to meet and exchange ideas with key figures across Germany and Europe. The program is fully funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
