About

Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of California Riverside.

My primary research interests are in the fields of applied micro-economics and development economics. My current research also draws from topics in economic history, agricultural and environmental economics, as well as public economics. For a complete list of published and working papers, please see my CV.

My teaching experience includes work as both an Associate Instructor and Teaching Assistant. I have been Associate Instructor (with sole responsibility for course development and instruction) for World Economic History during the summer sessions of 2015, 2016, and 2017 at UCR. My experience as a Teaching Assistant includes courses in Introductory Micro- and Macroeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Managerial Economics, and International Finance.

This year I will be attending the ASSA meetings in Philadelphia. For more information, please contact me at ekwjones@gmail.com.
