Erik is a professor in the Construction Engineering Department at École de Technologie Supérieure and co-director of the Groupe de recherche en intégration et développement durable en environnement bâti (GRIDD). He specializes in the integration and optimization of information flows within the value chains of the built assets industry. Erik is vice-president of the Quebec BIM group, a member of the board of directors of buildingSMART Canada, and director of the mirror committee of the Standards Council of Canada for ISO technical committee 59 - technical committee 13 (ISO TC59-SC13). He holds a doctorate and a master's degree in construction engineering from École de technologie supérieure and a bachelor's degree in architecture from Université Laval. He also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of British Columbia.

Erik's research focuses on the management and modeling of information supporting the design, construction, operation and use of the built environment in line with the principles of the circular economy. In particular, it develops strategies to ensure the traceability of products and materials and their information throughout the life-cycle of built assets. In addition, it aims to develop collaborative information modeling practices to support decision-making throughout the lifecycle of built assets. To this end, it develops practices and tools to ensure the implementation and maintenance of a digital thread, linked to assets, ensuring the implementation of practices facilitating the circular economy.
