Welcome Everyone!! I am Dr. Hasan Ferdous. I am a Researcher at the Centre for Digital Transformation of Health , the University of Melbourne, Australia. Previously, I served as a Lecturer at Deakin University, Australia and as a Research Fellow at the Microsoft Centre for SocialNUI and Interaction Design Lab (IDL), School of Computing and Information Systems, the University of Melbourne, Australia. My research interest is focused on digital health, user centric design approaches, social and collaborative use of technologies, and ICT for development. My expertise includes qualitative research design, user experience evaluation, prototype design and development, statistical analysis, etc.

I have completed PhD research from the University of Melbourne focusing on social and collaborative use of technologies, particularly in the family mealtime context. I am also interested in touch, eye-gaze and other NUI interactions in the public or private social settings. I completed my Master of IT (Research) degree from Monash University, Australia and BSc (Engg.) from the Dept. of CSE, BUET, Bangladesh.
