Sungjune is a Ph.D. candidate in the Finance and Business Economics Department. He has studied Statistics and Business Administration as an undergraduate and graduate student. He has industry experiences in risk management, equity trading, and fixed income.
He is interested in empirical asset pricing and financial econometrics.
