One of his papers, “Removal of Lead from Contaminated Water,” which has been down loaded over eleven thousand (exactly 11,156) times by readers at 157 institutions in 59 countries, making it the largest downloaded research paper ever recorded on the planet.

Dr. Brooks' area of the research is engineering materials. In a subarea of his research Dr. Brooks has been collaborating with chemical engineering researchers. The focus has been on the materials and processes for the generation and storage of clean energy. This unique research combination contributed significantly for the benefit of the society. Dr. Brooks published 10 international peer reviewed journal papers in this category. This is the world's highest record of international prestigious papers with the largest Journal Impact factor of 25.7 in the civil and chemical engineering collaborated research area.

Dr. Brooks forged over a dozen unbroken strong chains of memberships of professional organizations covering the full spectrum of human activities (humanities, science, engineering, and technology) leading to a colossal two centuries of membership service ranging from professional member through senior member to fellow grade member and life member. The following are examples of such organizations: American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the International Society of Automation, World History Association, and Society for Philosophy in the Contemporary World. In 2007, Dr. Brooks was the vice chair of the Committee on Dissemination of Failure Information of the Council on Forensic Engineering of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Professional organizations lead the professions for the prosperity and safety of humanity. Membership works as the life blood for the success of these organizations. Dr. Brooks achieved the following prestigious awards for recruiting the most professional members: “The Most Valuable Player” award in 2016 and 2017 from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and one award from the International Association for the Bridge and Structural Engineers in 2017. Additionally he won four ASEE national awards as shown below: (1) for recruiting the most new professional members, 2008-09, (2) for obtaining the highest percentage of faculty membership, 2008-09; and (3) the Outstanding Campus Representative for Zone 1, 2008-09 (this is the highest award at the society level), and (4) for recruiting the most new professional members, 2016-17.
