Rob Bates is a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University and a PhD Candidate at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge. While at Harvard he will be working on his doctoral thesis, which considers the connection between state-building and corruption in the late-nineteenth-century United States. He is especially interested in the politics of America’s ‘Gilded Age,’ and hopes to explore the political parallels between that period and the present in his future research. Rob is originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, and previously studied at Newcastle University.
