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 at UC Berkeley.


I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in food and health economics, with a particular focus on public policy relating to consumer behavior. Some of my recent work has examined the economic impacts of sugar-sweetened beverage taxes and the adoption and regulation of genetically-modified foods. I also have interests in the economics of sport and entertainment. 


In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading science fiction, playing basketball, and skiing.
