Scott Kaplan

Welcome to my personal website! I am a 6th year PhD candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics in the College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley. I am on the 2020-21 job market and available for (virtual) interviews.


My research interests lie broadly in industrial organization, applied econometrics, and quantitative marketing. Specifically, I have conducted economic research in sports and entertainment as well as consumer purchasing and voting behavior. I am particularly interested in how consumers respond to and make decisions based on different types of information.


I completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley in 2014 with a double major in Environmental Science and Environmental Economics and Policy.  In my free time, I love cooking, reading, playing basketball, snowboarding, blogging, and (more recently) quarantining.
