Dr Gemma Ryde

  • Lecturer in Lifestyle (physical activity and/or nutrition) and Metabolic Health (Cardiovascular & Metabolic Health)


I have been an advocate for physically activity from a young age and actively involved in sport and physical activity throughout my life. I started my career as a fitness instructor and completed my undergraduate degree in Biology with Sport and Exercise Science at Heriot Watt University in 2005. I then spent several years in community physical activity development, working for organisations such as Edinburgh Leisure and Paths For All with a focus on promoting walking in deprived communities. I embarked on a career in academia in 2009 by completing my PhD at The University of Queensland, in Australia. I returned to Scotland in 2013 where I completed several years Post-Doctoral training before accepting a position as Lecturer at the University of Stirling. In 2021 I moved to the University of Glasgow as a lecturer on the MSc in Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine.
