Professor Chitiga- Mabugu is the executive director of the Economic Performance and Development research programme at the HSRC.

She was previously with the economics department at the University of Pretoria, where she taught microeconomics, public sector economics, development economics, economic modelling and mathematics for economists; and has supervised a number of PhD and MSc students. She has also been involved in intensive teaching at the Joint Facility for Electives at the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) teaching public finance, and at the Collaborative MSc in Agricultural and Applied Economics -- teaching economic modelling. She was invited to be part of a 5 member international team of resource persons to run an international course on CGE modelling for the Ecological and Environmental Economics Programme, a joint programme of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and the Beijer International Institute of Ecological Economics.

Her research interests are in tracing and analysing the effects of government policies on households, and on the economy more broadly. She has applied various modelling approaches to answering questions on trade liberalisation, land reform, and environmental policies, amongst others. She has also conducted research for various organisations and government departments such as the Department of Trade and Industry, the Department of Transport, National Treasury, the Department of Social Development, the Development Bank of Southern Africa and The United Nations Children's Fund.

She has published both locally and internationally in such journals as Economic Modelling, Journal of Development Studies, Energy Journal, Journal of African Economies, South African Journal of Economics, South African Journal of Economics and Management Sciences and Agrekon among others. In addition, she has contributed to several book chapters.

She is project coordinator for Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy in Africa (CEEPA) and co-editor of CEEPA publications. She is a board member on the AERC?S training sub committee, a steering committee member of the Southern African Development Research Network (SADRN) and is an associate editor for Environment and Development Economics Journal, published by Oxford University Press.
