You can find my complete CV here and contact me by e-mail at vitoraugusto.possebom@yale.edu. You can also check my Twitter.


My current research interests include Theoretical and Applied Microeconometrics, an area full of amazing questions whose answers, when theoretically grounded and well-identified, can guide policy implementation. Currently, I focus on identification challenges with more than one source of endogeneity, such as problems that combine self-selection into treatment with sample selection or misclassification.


I refereed articles to the Review of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, the Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, the Journal of Human Capital, the International Economic Review, the European Journal of Government and Economics, Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics, Revista Brasileira de Economia, EconomiA, and Pesquisa e Planejamento Econômico.
