Marc Jeuland is an associate 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.
Marc’s 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, especially to understand the impacts and robustness of water resources projects in transboundary river systems. Besides working with other academics, he 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), and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC). Prior to his graduate studies and work at UNC-Chapel Hill, Marc 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 holds a B.S. in Engineering from Swarthmore College.

We find that improved household ventilation in rural Senegal can reduce kitchen pollution levels by a similar amount as upgrading fuel and stove technology, once we account for real world cooking practices. The effects of ventilation alone are likely insufficient to deliver elusive health impacts, however, and should thus be seen as an interim step toward realizing the benefits of clean cooking.
The falling costs of solar technology and development of new and more cost-effective battery technologies have made off-grid solutions the preferred least cost technology for electrification in many rural settings. Yet, the sector faces numerous challenges that...
A new review published in Nature Energy examining more than 100 research articles concludes that despite the profound importance of and commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals for gender equality (SDG5) and universal access to modern energy (SDG7), there are gaps in knowledge about the relationship between gender and energy that could hinder progress toward these goals.
Marc Jeuland will work with leading African scholars at the Environmental-Economics 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.
On the latest episode from the Sanford’s Ways & Means podcast – Marc Jeuland, Jonathan Phillips, & Rahel Bekele discusses how solar mini-grid powered irrigation can change smallholder farmers’ lives and the work EAP@Duke is doing to evaluate the effects of the DREAM project on the resilience of the farming community.
Investment decisions made in low- and middle-income countries leading up to 2030 will determine whether low-carbon pathways out of poverty and climate vulnerability are possible for millions, and whether the next global surge in emissions can be prevented. There...
The Distributed Renewable Energy-Agriculture Modalities (DREAM) project was launched to demonstrate the viability of solar mini-grids for delivering improved irrigation services, greater agricultural productivity and expanded rural electrification. The DREAM...
