M.A., Texas A&M University

Ph.D., Stanford University

Originally from Japan, Dr. Hoshi earned his B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Tokyo, his M.A. in Philosophy at Texas A&M, and a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Stanford University. After teaching courses on logic and philosophy at a number of places, including Stanford University, he joined the Online High School. He is excited to serve the school as the Director of Stanford Online High School this year. He will still continue to teach a class for History and Philosophy of Science (OHSC0). 

In addition to teaching, Dr. Hoshi has engaged in various research projects on logic and has published papers in related fields, including philosophy, computer science, and mathematics.

Dr. Hoshi loves cooking, having worked as a cook in Tokyo. His favorite foods are Italian, Korean, and Japanese. He also is a part of the Stanford Japanese Running Club and runs several marathons a year.
