Kyoung-Kuk Kim

I'm an associate professor in the ISE dept at KAIST. (I'm also a member of Risk lab in the dept, and an affiliate professor in Math dept.)

Advice for students from Ravi Vakil (you can safely replace algebraic geometry with operations research or financial engineering.)

See also advice from Mark Joshi and Emanuel Derman if you want to be a quant.
