Lecturer in Environmental Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Mahidol University

Dr. Alan Marshall is a New Zealand environment scholar now working at Mahidol University near Bangkok, Thailand. Marshall's been an active 'science critic' for many years. This does not mean he is 'anti-science' (just as a 'film critic' is not 'anti-film').

Marshall is the author of dozens of papers and five books on various topics, for example:

-the history and philosophy of environmentalism
-utopianism/dystopianism and environmentalism
-visions of future cities
-the ethics of space exploration
-the ethics of nuclear waste management
-environmental art and Green technology

Marshall has worked as an international research fellow in institutes and universities all around Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region. He has held research positions at IAS-STS (Austria), KUSTAR (Abu Dhabi), Presov University and UJPS (Slovakia), Mahidol University (Thailand), and Curtin University of Technology (Australia).
