Zachary Schlader, PhD

Associate Professor, Department Of Kinesiology, Indiana University-Bloomington

Zachary (Zac) Schlader, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Indiana University-Bloomington (IUB). He came to IUB from the University at Buffalo, where he was an Assistant Professor in Exercise and Nutrition Sciences from 2014-2019. Zac completed his BS from Austin Peay State University (2006), his MS from IUB (2008) and his PhD from Massey University (New Zealand, 2011). He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine (Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and UT Southwestern Medical Center). Zac’s research interests broadly involve understanding the implications of environmental stressors (e.g., heat, cold, altitude, depth) on integrative physiology. Current research foci include examining the impact of occupational heat stress and heatwaves on kidney health, and elucidating responses to diving related environmental exposures (e.g., alterations in blood gases, cold, contamination). These studies are carried out with relevance to at-risk populations (e.g., military, manual laborers, older adults, etc.).
