Aaron G Schultz

Dr Aaron Schultz completed his PhD at Deakin University in 2011 and held several Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions in Canada and Australia before commencing his Lecturer in Animal Biology position at Deakin University in 2017. Dr Schultz’s multidisciplinary research program is split into two main areas: (1) aquatic animal physiology – this program includes the study of ion-regulation, acid-base balance and nutrient uptake mechanisms in aquatic animals; (2) potential toxicity of contaminants of emerging concern – this program assesses the behavior, transformation, fate, bioavailability and potential toxicity of contaminants of emerging concern including, nanomaterials and nano/microplastics on biological systems. Dr Schultz also serves as the Deputy Chair of the Deakin University Nanosafety Committee, which he led the development of in recent years, and is the HDR coordinator in his School for off campus and international HDR students. During his time as HDR coordinator, he has been actively finding ways to improve off-campus and international student engagement with the University and their overall HDR experience. Dr Schultz’s passion for science also extends beyond research and tertiary education, into schools and the community, where he promotes science through a variety of platforms.
