Faculty selected as IPREP mentors
Rafael E. Bahamonde, Ph.D.
Rafael E. Bahamonde, Ph.D. - Faculty Liaison
Associate Dean of the IU School of Physical Education& Tourism Management
Professor of Physical Education

Tel: 317-274-2344
Email: rbahamon@iupui.edu
Office: PE255
Professor Bahamonde’s area of research is the biomechanics of human locomotion, specifically the relationship of leg dominance on injuries of the lower extremity, gait analysis of orthopedics conditions and diseases, and the use of wireless sensors technology to track human motion.
Anthony Kaleth, Ph.D.
Anthony Kaleth, Ph.D.
Professor of Kinesiology
Tel :317-278-8439
Email: akaleth@iupui.edu
Office: PE271
Professor Kaleth’s research efforts and clinical experiences involve exercise testing, exercise/physical activity programming, and health/fitness outcome evaluation for individuals diagnosed with obesity-related disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea and fibromyalgia. Current research in collaboration with the IUSM is aimed at determining the effects of vibration exercise on blood biomarkers of cardiovascular health./div>
Nicole Keith, Ph.D.
Nicole Keith, Ph.D.
Professor of Kinesiology, Research Scientist, IU Center for Aging Research
Investigator, Regenstrief Institute, Indiana University School of Medicine

Tel: 317-278-8438
Email: nkeith@iupui.edu
Office: PE266
Professor Keith is in the fourth year of a NHBLI K-award for training in health disparities research. She has experience in the development of community exercise and health promotion programs to promote adult fitness. Dr. Keith recently completed a MS degree in medical research in order to receive further training in program and health outcome evaluation. Her research focus is reducing health disparities and achieving health equity through physical activity participation.
Zachary Riley, Ph.D.
Zachary Riley, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Kinesiology
Tel: 765-215-1487
Email: zariley@iupui.edu
Office: PE250
Professor Riley’s work examines the interaction between cortical and sensory input in the spinal cord in an effort to better understand neural integration. Ultimately, Professor Riley's research will direct rehabilitation protocols for stroke and spinal cord injury, where there is disrupted or abnormal synaptic input to the motor-neuron pool. Professor Riley uses single motor unit recording techniques as well as various electrical and magnetic stimulation techniques for this purpose.
Andrew Coggan, Ph.D.
Andrew Coggan, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Kinesiology
Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology, IUSM

Tel: 317-276-0656
Email: acoggan@iupui.edu
Office: PE250
Dr. Coggan is an exercise physiologist who studies the metabolic responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise in healthy individuals, athletes, and patient populations. These studies utilize a wide variety of techniques, including muscles biopsies, 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy, arteriovenous balance sampling, and stable and radioactive isotopic tracers. Most recently, his research has focused upon the regulation of skeletal muscle perfusion and contractile function, two key targets of nitric oxide signaling, and how these may be modulated by dietary nitrate.
Jake Streepey, Ph.D.
Jake Streepey, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Kinesiology
Tel: 317-278-0916
Email: jwstreep@iupui.edu
Office: PE250
Dr. Streepey’s has Ph.D. Kinesiology (Biomechanics) from the University of Michigan and served a postdoctoral research at the Rehabilitation Institute in Chicago. His research involves the use of virtual reality to help people with balance disorders. He currently working on the development of a protocol using virtual reality to test for concussion.
Kelly M. Naugle, Ph.D.
Kelly M. Naugle, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Kinesiology
Tel: 317-274-0601
Email: kmnaugle@iupui.edu
Office: PE250
Dr. Naugle’s research interests include using quantitative sensory testing to understand age-related deleterious changes in pain modulation and the testing and development of behavioral strategies that can target the mechanisms known to be dysfunctional. In particular, her current work focuses on the impact of physical activity behavior and exercise as a therapeutic and preventative strategy for chronic pain.
