Dr Michael Cole is a Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience and Motor Control within the School of Exercise Science. Michael has an extensive background in the fields of biomechanics and exercise science, with specific research interests in the areas of neuroscience and sports and clinical biomechanics.
In 2011, Michael was awarded an Early Career Researcher Fellowship from the National Health & Medical Research Council to carry out a project aimed at improving insight into potential neuromuscular deficits that contribute to poor postural control and falls in people with Parkinson's disease. Currently, Michael's other research focuses on i) the efficacy of Deep Brain Stimulation therapy for gait and balance disorders in people with Parkinson's disease; ii) evaluating the benefits of non-invasive therapies for people with Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis; and iii) evaluating the safety of common interventions for gait and balance disorders in people with neurological impairments.

Dr Mark Moresi started in the School of Exercise Science as a lecturer in Exercise Science in 2012. Prior to taking a position at ACU Mark worked as a Biomechanist with the NSW Institute of Sport providing sport science support for a number of sports including track and field.
Mark graduated from his PhD in 2012 which investigated the use of musculoskeletal kinetic models to predict injury and performance in high level adolescent female athletes. Mark's ongoing research interests include the biomechanics of sports techniques, sport injury and injury mechanisms, sport techniques and track and field with a specific interest in the influence of mechanical loading on injury mechanisms in elite athletes.
