Dr Anand Ganesan is a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders, University of Adelaide, and electrophysiology fellow at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Dr Ganesan graduated from the University of Sydney, Australia, in 2000. He completed his PhD in basic cardiac electrophysiology at Johns Hopkins University, under the mentorship of Professor Brian O'Rourke from 2001-6. He went on to complete his internal medicine and cardiology training at Westmead Hospital, Sydney, Australia from 2006-10. He has been in his current position since January, 2011. Dr Ganesan’s research interests included evidence-based practice in electrophysiology, and atrial fibrillation mapping and ablation. His current mentor is Prof Prash Sanders.
