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.

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.

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.

My research work focuses on the prevention and management of lower-limb injuries, particularly the anterior cruciate ligament.
