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 primary research interests in food and health. Most of my work examines consumer behavior with the goal of informing public policy. Some of my recently published research has studied the economic impacts of sugar-sweetened beverage taxes and the adoption and regulation of genetically-modified foods. I also have research interests in the economics of sport and entertainment. 


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