Prof. Spash is an economist who writes, researches and teaches on public policy with an emphasis on economic and environmental interactions. His main interests are interdisciplinary research on human behaviour, environmental values and the transformation of the world political economy to a more socially and environmentally just system. His work has covered acidic deposition, ozone impacts on agriculture, human induced climate change and biodiversity. This has involved a range of disciplinary understandings: economics, political science, applied philosophy, history of thought, philosophy of science, ethics, social psychology, plant science, atmospheric science, toxicology and ecology. He pursues this interdisciplinary and integrative work within the context of social ecological economics.
