The associate professor will spend the 2023-24 academic year at the University of Cape Town.
Marc Jeuland, associate professor of public policy and Duke Center for International Development faculty affiliate, received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award for the 2023-24 academic year.
Jeuland will work with leading African scholars at the Economic Policy Research Unit (EPRU) and the School of Economics at the University of Cape Town (UCT). His teaching and research will focus on the limited access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa, where 55% of the population lacks electricity, many more have intermittent supply and consume little energy and nearly 80% depend on polluting technologies for lighting, cooking and heating. Jeuland aims to train students in the applied quantitative social science methods needed to solve the region’s energy challenges and to build a collaborative research program for measuring and improving energy-based value chains.
Jeuland holds joint appointments in the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Duke Global Health Institute. His research interests include non-market valuation, water and sanitation, environmental health, energy poverty and transitions, trans-boundary water resource planning and management, and the impacts and economics of climate change.
