Prior to this position, she spent 4 years in Louisiana as an Assistant Professor, Biomechanics and Applied Physiology Laboratory Director, and Graduate Program Coordinator at Louisiana Tech University. Brooks received her Ph.D. from The University of Alabama in December 2005, where she was named the first female Environmental Laboratory Coordinator, and was nominated for "Outstanding Dissertation."
Dr. Brooks has published over 30 peer-reviewed articles, and has worked with numerous graduate students. Brooks and her graduate students have over 80 presentations since 2007, at professional meetings at the regional and national level. Her research interests include environmental physiology and hydration, DNA and exercise, relating biomechanical and physiological variables during athletic performance, adrenal insufficiency and chronic fatigue, prevention of injury in athletes, and the impact of injury on future disease risk/limitations in former college and professional athletes. Her research on collection of "real-time" data led to an interest in validation of both biomechanical and physiological remote monitoring devices. Brooks has worked as an advisor for several companies in development of devices, apps, and the latest technology in sports medicine, medical devices and apps, and ergogenic supplements. Brooks frequently presents on environmental issues and hydration across the country. She is on the editorial board of three professional journals, and is a member of the Midwest NSCA advisory board.
