Professor, Public Policy and Global Health

Marc Jeuland is a Professor holding primary appointments in the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Duke Global Health Institute at Duke University, and secondary affiliations with the Nicholas School of the Environment and the Pratt School of Engineering. He currently co-leads the James E. Rogers Energy Access Project at Duke, a research, teaching, and engagement oriented program aiming to reduce global energy poverty and to enhance the development impacts of energy sector interventions. He also holds a research affiliation with the Rheinisch-Westfalisches Institut (RWI) – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research.

Jeuland is an applied environmental economist whose research interests include nonmarket valuation, water and sanitation, environmental health, energy and development, the planning and management of trans-boundary water resources and the impacts and economics of climate change. His research in the domain of environment and development has mostly focused on South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and includes a mix of micro-level household surveys and experimental or quasi-experimental studies, and systems level modeling, the latter of which are especially geared to understanding the impacts and robustness of water resources projects in transboundary river systems. Besides working with other academics, Jeuland collaborates often with researchers and practitioners working in organizations such as the World Bank, USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC), the World Health Organization, and the Nile Basin Initiative.

He teaches several courses at Duke University including Economics of the Public SectorEconomic Analysis and Evaluation for Public Health and EnvironmentWater Cooperation and Conflict, Global Environmental Health, and a Bass Connections course on Strategies for Energy, Water, and Agriculture Development in Ethiopia.

Prior to my graduate studies and work at UNC-Chapel Hill, Jeuland was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa, where he designed and monitored construction of a pilot wastewater treatment system and trained management personnel at the plant’s managing firm. He earned a B.S. in engineering from Swarthmore College.
