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 economics and applied econometrics, with applications in agriculture, public health, and sports. I am particularly interested in how consumers respond to and make decisions based on different types of information. I have conducted research examining consumer purchasing and voting behavior in various settings. 


I completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley with a double major in Environmental Science and Environmental Economics and Policy.  In my free time, I love to cook, read science fiction, travel, play basketball, ski, and blog.
