Alyssa Carlson

I am an assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I received my Ph.d. from Michigan State University in 2019 and a B.S. in Economics and a B.A. in International Relations from American University in Washington D.C.

My research explores advanced econometric methodology needed to address real world data problems. Specifically, I examine the assumptions underlying common estimation strategies and propose new methods that may challenge or weaken those assumptions. Current topics I am interested in are general control function approaches to endogeneity and nonlinear sample selection models in panel data settings.
