Using methods of behavioral research, he conducts experimental research and tries to apply his findings to managerial and organizational settings. His work revolves around three main themes: behavioral ethics (e.g. the effect of competition on dishonesty), behavioral economics (e.g. the relationship between ownership status and prices) and behavioral law (e.g. how heuristics and biases in decision-making affect people’s interpretations, understanding and evaluations of the law in general and contractual obligation in particular). Amos research has appeared in peer-reviewed academic journals such as PNAS, Management Science, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Judgment and Decision-Making, Journal of Empirical Legal Studies as well as in media outlets such as Scientific American, The Washington Post, The Jerusalem Post, NPR and CBC radio.
