Welcome Everyone!! I am Hasan Shahid Ferdous, a Lecturer in Extended Reality at Deakin University, Burwood Campus, Melbourne, Australia. previously, I served as a Research Fellow and Associate Lecturer at the Microsoft Centre for SocialNUI and Interaction Design Lab (IDL), School of Computing and Information Systems, the University of Melbourne, Australia. Currently I am working on various virtual, augmented, and mixed reality systems for different social contexts.

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.

Everyday interactions with technologies (e.g., TV, mobile phones, etc.) around family mealtimes are often criticised. But can there be any positives too?

Body Canvas

We worked in collaboration with the Melbourne Science Gallery to investigate the use of "On Body Projections" in public settings.


Chorus transforms personal devices into a communal shared display on the table to enrich mealtime interactions and experience.

Augmented Studio

The Augmented Studio platform uses projection mapping to turn a human body into an interactive canvas in real-time.
