Research Profile

Dr Ganesh R Naik, ranked top 2% of researchers worldwide in Biomedical Engineering (Stanford University Research), is a leading expert in biomedical engineering and signal processing. He received his PhD in Electronics Engineering, specializing in biomedical engineering and signal processing, from RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, in December 2009. 

Dr Naik is a senior academic and researcher in Computer Science and IT at Torrens University Australia. As a mid-career researcher, he has edited 14 books and authored around 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. Ganesh is an associate editor for IEEE ACCESS, Frontiers in Neurorobotics, and two Springer journals (Circuits, Systems, and Signal Processing and Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine). He is a Baden–Württemberg Scholarship recipient from Berufsakademie, Stuttgart, Germany (2006–2007). In 2010, he was awarded an ISSI overseas fellowship from Skilled Institute Victoria, Australia. Recently (2023), he was awarded a BridgeTech industry fellowship from the Medical Research Future Fund, Govt of Australia.

Between July 2020 and August 2023, he was a research theme co-lead and academic at the Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health at Flinders University. He held a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position at MARCS Institute, Western Sydney University (WSU), between July 2017 and July 2020. Ganesh led the data analysis team on a multimillion-dollar CRC project for sleep and developed several novel algorithms (wearables) related to sleep projects. Before that, he held a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellowship position in the Centre for Health Technologies, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), between February 2013 and June 2017.
