Mingcong Pan

Welcome to my website.

I am a joint PhD student in political science and applied economics at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. I work on the intersection of political economy, comparative politics, and development economics. As a political scientist, my current research centers around how identity and cultural beliefs form, how they shape people’s behavior, and their implications for political and economic patterns. As an applied economist, I am broadly interested in engaging with the theories of decision-making (i.e., micro theory) and the empirical methods of causal inference, and applying them to a wide array of questions that interest me.

My name is pronounced as "ming-tsong," and you can reach me at mingcong.pan@wisc.edu.
