I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. During 2021-2022, I will be a Visiting Assistant Professor at Yale University.
My research areas include labour, education, and history. I use tools from these disciplines to better understand the persistence of socioeconomic inequalities between groups with a particular focus on skill accumulation and discrimination. I can be reached via email at maggie.ec.jones [at] gmail.com.
In Victoria, I am fortunate to live and work in the territory of the Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt), and WS’ANEC’ (Saanich) peoples. In New Haven, I acknowledge the lands of the Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples who have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut.
