Travers completed his PhD in Economics at the Vrije Universiteit and Tinbergen Institute in Amsterdam. He is an affiliate of the Households in Conflict Network (HiCN). In 2014/15, Travers held a Marie Curie fellowship at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, under the PODER network. That same year, he spent time at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development as a visiting researcher.
