Pashardes specialised in consumer behaviour, public, and welfare economics, applied econometrics and the economy of Cyprus, and published dozens of studies academic journals.

While he was a member of the socialist party Edek, his positions on economic policy were considered liberal. He publicly advocated the privatisation of state-owned enterprises such as telecoms company, Cyta, and the overhaul of public sector’s human resource management.
