Gildas Kadoukpè Magbondé is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Economics at the University of Cape Town (UCT), majoring in the impact evaluation of public policies. Before joining UCT, Gildas has completed a master’s degree in applied macroeconomics at the University of Abomey-Calavi (UAC) and a master’s degree in international and Development Economics jointly organized by the University of Namur and the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium). He is also affiliated with the Laboratoire de Recherche en Economie de Saint-Louis (LARES) in Senegal, where most of his reflections are macroeconomics. Macroeconomic topics such as foreign direct investment (FDI), institutions, economic growth, and structural change in developing countries are his areas of predilection. His microeconomic research lines feature impact evaluation of public policies – energy and water interventions – and rural households’ well-being. As a STAARS fellow, Gildas Kadoukpè Magbondé investigates the impact of rural electrification on household poverty in Senegal.
