Welcome to Nik Tuzov's website!

 

Last update: Nov 24, 2011. A new SAS project is posted in Software skills -> SAS section.


Although my concentration is in Quantitative Finance, I am interested in any area where advanced quantitative methods can add value.  This site mostly contains research and software projects that I completed as a graduate student in Purdue. More up-to-date information is available in my  LinkedIn profile.
