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.
