Tatsunori Hashimoto

Note: I have graduated and moved to stanford university as a post-doc for Percy Liang and John Duchi. I was a fifth-year graduate student in computer science at MIT. Co-advised by Tommi Jaakkola and David Gifford.

Before MIT, I graduated from Harvard University with an A.B. in statistics and mathematics and was advised by Edoardo Airoldi
