Welcome to the teaching and scholarship page for Dr. Ted Nelson.  I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Science at Georgetown University.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2006 and joined the faculty at Georgetown in 2012. I am broadly interested in the relationship between genetics and behavior, and have spent the past 15 years investigating mechanisms of taste transduction.
