Personal profile


Dr Celeste Coltman is an Assistant Professor in the Discipline of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Canberra. Celeste completed her PhD at the University of Wollongong in the area of Breast Biomechanics. Her thesis examined the breast characteristics of Australian women in order to develop evidence-based recommendations to improve sports bra fit and breast support. Celeste has a keen interest in the development of products and technologies that assist women to access correctly fitted and supportive sports bra product. Celeste is also interested in biomechanical and ergonomical factors related to fit, form and function of personal protective equipment and other performance garments.
