Angelos Stamos

My research focuses on understanding human behavior and its implications on several topics such as: 1) the effect of resource scarcity on individuals' decision making 2) the impact temptations and impulsiveness on peoples' eating and economic behavior, 3) how human interact with digital technologies.  I draw insights from economics, marketing, psychology, and evolutionary biology and focus on rigorous and transparent research methods.

I am a member of the Consumer and Behavioural Insights Group (CBIG) at the CBS Sustainability Centre.
