Dr Gemma Miller is a Lecturer in Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). She is a member of the Cardiovascular Health Sciences Research Group within the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences (RISES). Her research encompasses cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and thermoregulatory physiology and investigating the impact of physical activity and exercise. Gemma is also a steering group member of Clinical Exercise Physiology UK, whose aim is to establish and promote accredited Clinical Exercise Physiologists to work within healthcare in the UK.
Gemma completed an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science in 2012 and went onto studying an MSc in Sport Physiology (2012-2013). After gaining employment in a full time technical role at LJMU, she underwent her PhD part-time in cerebrovascular and cardiovascular physiology, successfully completing in 2021.
