I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.  My research areas include applied microeconomics and labour economics, with a focus on the economics of education, development economics and economic history.  I use tools from these disciplines to understand how culture contributes to economic inequalities between groups.

My dissertation focusses on economic issues facing Indigenous peoples in both Canada and the United States.  I can be reached via email at  maggie.ec.jones [at] gmail.com
