He is also the assistant Director for the Program on Industrial Engineering and Managements (swe: biträdande programledare för civilingenjörsprogrammet i Industriell ekonomi) from May 2016 and onwards.
Erik is the director from the statistical consulting service aim at the Science faculty, offering free short term assistance and co-funded assistance for large research project. Please follow the link for more information
His research interests include financial mathematics, energy finance and related questions about the stabilility of the power system, statistical theory and testing as well as development of algorithms for parameter estimation in continuous time processes, typically discretely observed diffusion processes. Some of that research in touched upon in his recent (2015) book, Statistics for Finance.
Dr Lindström does not offer any internships. Any open position will be announced trought the main LU open positions site.
