Dr Joseph Costello
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
BiographyDr. Joseph Costello joined the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in May 2012. At IHBI Dr. Costello is the project manager of study titled HERO (Heat Exposure Risk Management for Operational Command). This project is currently developing physiological tolerance limits for individuals wearing bomb suits and supporting chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear protective equipment. Previous to this Joseph worked as a teaching assistant and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Limerick, Ireland in the area of exercise/environmental physiology. The title of his Ph.D. was “The Effects of Cryotherapy on Proprioception, Indices of Muscle Damage and on Intramuscular, Skin and Core Temperature.”
