    Welcome Everyone. I am Hasan Shahid Ferdous. I am a research fellow at the Microsoft Centre for SocialNUI, School of Computing and Information Systems, University of Melbourne, Australia. My PhD research was focused on social and collaborative use of technologies, particularly in the family mealtime context. Currently I am working on Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed reality applications for various social spaces. I am also interested in touch, eye-gaze and other NUI interactions in the public or private social settings.
