Schott is available to speak about environmental taxation (the Carbon Tax), renewable energy and issues relating to Arctic mammals.

One of his major research interests is the governance of common pool resources such as fisheries, water resources and oil pools.  He is currently undertaking experimental research on output-sharing partnerships in different communication environments.  This research is relevant for policy and natural management applications in commercial fisheries as well as sharing rules in indigenous cultures, particularly in Arctic regions. His other focus is on energy policy and economics.
