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 sports, public health, and agriculture. My recent research has examined the economic impacts of superstars, consumer respones to sugar-sweetened beverage taxes, and adoption of genetically-modified foods. 


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.
