Optimizing the Information Interaction Bandwidth on Mobile Devices
Mohammad Khalad Hasan is a PhD Candidate at the University of Manitoba under the supervision of Dr. Pourang Irani. Khalad earned his M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the same university. He is currently working as a Research Associate in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab at the University of Manitoba where his research focus is on developing and studying novel interactions with mobile and wearable devices. More specifically, he is interested in exploring users’ needs and making an impact in their lives when it concerns efficient mobile interactivity. During his graduate studies, he developed strong collaboration ties with academics as well as with industry partners including Autodesk Research, Canada and Honda Research, Japan. His research work has led to a number of publications, with many appearing in top-tier HCI venues which include the ACM Conference on Human Factors and Systems (ACM CHI) and the ACM Conference on User Interfaces and Technology (ACM UIST). His work has also been recognized through best paper award at ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (ACM SUI) and featured in popular press via the Discovery News and New Scientist outlets. His current focus is on designing and developing novel interfaces for mobile and wearable devices to enable users’ access to digital content anytime, anywhere.
