Biography

Jennifer Jones directs the activities of the Economics Career Office (ECO) to equip majors with tools and resources to successfully reach the next steps in their career planning. Jen partners with faculty, alumni, employers, and other career offices on the grounds toward this goal. She was hired in 2013 to spearhead this effort after funding was provided by many enthusiastic and committed donors through the leadership of Professors Ken Elzinga and Charlie Holt.

Jen returned to the University of Virginia (U.Va.) in 2013 after working as the Director of Student Career Services for Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). Before that time she worked as a fundraiser for U.Va. and served in several roles, including Associate Director for Corporate Relations, and Senior Major Gift Officer for the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.

Fortunate to work alongside University volunteers, trustees, faculty, foundations, and corporations, Jen assisted in raising money for research funding, building projects, new undergraduate courses and programming, and in support of academic positions. She began her career at U.Va. working in the U.Va. Career Center office managing the Employer Relations Team and the On-Grounds Interviewing Program.

Jen has been recognized by the Eastern Association of Colleges and Employers (EACE) with the association’s award for Innovation and is energized by designing creative and customized career programs to meet students’ needs in an ever-evolving economy. Jen holds a Master’s degree in Education from U.Va. and a Master’s degree in English Education from Hofstra University. She and her husband founded the Big Blue Door Improv Comedy School and Theater in Charlottesville in 2012. She spends as much time as possible with her 6-year-old daughter, Ellie Grace.

Biography

Eric Leeper is the Paul Goodloe McIntire Professor in Economics at the University of Virginia, a position he began in 2018. He is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, director of the Virginia Center for Economic Policy at the University of Virginia, an external advisor to the Swedish central bank, and a member of the Research Council of the Bundesbank.

      His research focuses on theoretical and empirical models of macroeconomic policy, with special emphasis on monetary-fiscal policy interactions. One line of work focuses on a new mechanism—called the “fiscal theory of the price level”—by which fiscal policy can influence economic activity and inflation. Recent research examines the economic impacts of government spending, the macroeconomic consequences of alternative resolutions to long-run fiscal imbalances, and the modeling of the “fiscal limit” and sovereign risk.

      Leeper received a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Minnesota in 1989 and a B.S. in economics from George Mason University in 1980. Prior to joining the faculty at Virginia, Leeper spent 23 years at Indiana University and eight years in the Federal Reserve System. Leeper was born in Isfahan, Iran, and spent his school-age years in Taiwan, Malaysia, Seattle, Hong Kong, and Northern Virginia.

      In coming years, Leeper’s research will focus on the policies that allowed the United States to recover from the Great Depression and on a project with the International Monetary Fund to quantify fiscal limits across countries.
