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.

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.
