Scott Kaplan, PhD
Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the United States Naval Academy. I received my PhD from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics in the Rausser College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley in Spring 2021.
I am an applied microeconomist with broad research interests in consumer behavior, food and health policy, and the economics of sport and entertainment. Most of my research is empirically focused. Some of my recent work has examined the economic impacts of sugar-sweetened beverage taxes, adoption and regulation of genetically-modified foods, and the economics of superstars.
In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading science fiction, playing basketball, and skiing.
