My research is largely focused upon biomechanics and motor control of human movement with specific interest in sports performance, injury mechanisms, movement variability, and human gait.

My research is largely focussed upon the role of walking and running gait biomechanics in the causation of and rehabilitation from (i) lower limb overuse injuries, and (ii) lower limb osteoarthritis. Specific projects include understanding the role of the hip muscles in injury development during military training, altered muscle function following ACL injury, and the interaction between mechanical joint stiffness and episodes of giving way in people with knee osteoarthritis.

Brooke graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2003 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. After several years of working in the public hospital system she focused her practice to paediatrics and childhood disability. In 2013 Brooke completed her PhD which investigated mobility and gait characteristics in children with hereditary spastic paraplegia. Brooke's current research interests include studies to better understand and enhance participation in children with disabilities as well as maintaining an interest in gait and mobility.
