Joseph Gates

Project Associate

Joe Gates joined the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project after nearly two years in the think tank world, researching Russian and Eurasian politics and providing administrative and program management support to senior researchers at the American Enterprise Institute.

Before that, Joe studied at Georgetown University, where he received a Master’s in Eurasian regional studies, as well as at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where he studied political science and was an alternate captain of the fearsome Tarheel club ice hockey team in his undergrad days. He reads and understands Russian at a high level. Contact: [email protected].
