Kazi Saidul Hasan

I am a software engineer in the Watson Core Algorithms group at IBM. Previously, I was a PhD student in Computer Science at University of Texas at Dallas. I was a member of the Human Language Technology Research Institute. My research advisor was Dr. Vincent Ng. Before that I was an undergraduate at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
