Kevin Lu3

Kevin graduated with a BS from the Mathematics Honors Track in 2013. He took an interest in financial engineering after reading My Life as a Quant by Emmanuel Derman and so took a few courses from the MSMF program during his time at Rutgers. After graduation, he worked as a strategist for Goldman Sachs Asset Management in their Quantitative Investment Strategies team. Subsequently, he was a quantitative developer for AQR Capital Management leading several efforts for their equities and credit strategies. Currently, he is on garden leave from AQR awaiting to start a new position at Cubist Systematic Strategies.
Kevin is very grateful that Rutgers gave him the opportunity to take MSMF courses as an undergraduate. These helped him find his dream career in quantitative investing.
