Ataur Rahman (Shuvo)

I love working with people and I have been fascinated by the ways novel technologies can influence interaction between human and technology.I recently completed my MSc in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the University of Nottingham. My research interest lies in the area of information seeking, HCI,social computing, ICT4D etc.

Previously, I studied in Electronics and Telecomunnication Engineering at North South University, Dhaka. Beside, I have been working as a web designer for over three years now. I served as web developer in iTechnoLab Ltd in Dhaka Bangladesh right after graduation. Later, I was involved with Webimpulse, a web solution company based in London. Email: shuvo [DOT] 2007 [AT] Download CV [.PDF]

My Research Projects 2011~2014


This project explores how serendipity is understood in literature in context of information seeking. Furthermore, it also researches the scopes of using personal data from social network to induce serendipity in web search. Finally, it also proposes design for showing serendipitous recommendation in search user interface. A prototype search engine named Feegli is developed in this project.


A low cost interactive classroom has been developed with a microcontroller based interactive a whiteboard, automation of attendance count system using RFID and interactive control panel to control electrical devices inside the classroom.

Mobile EULA

The ongoing project aims to investigate possibility of designing a better interface for the EULA (End- User Licence Agreement) of cell phone applications with a more readable factors and enhanced user experience. Already four different designs have been proposed and a user study will be conducted to test the hypothesis regarding enhancing readability.
