Scott Kaplan, PhD

Welcome to my personal website! 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. In July 2021, I will be joining the Economics Department at the United States Naval Academy as an Assistant Professor.


I am an applied microeconomist with broad research interests in consumer economics, applied econometrics, and quantitative marketing. In particular, I study how consumers respond to and make decisions based on different types of information. I have conducted research in various media settings, examining consumer purchasing and voting behavior. 


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.
