Expertises Dielectric properties of polymers and composites. Degradation of insulating systems and development of diagnostic technique to assess the health of insulating system for high voltage application


Eric David is professor at the École de technologie supérieure, Montréal, Québec, Canada. He received an Engineering degree and a PhD in Engineering Physics from the École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1988 and 1996, respectively. He joined the Hydro-Québec Research Institute (IREQ) in 1998, and from 2001 to 2002, where he was active in the field of dielectric materials used for underground cables and rotating machines. He joined the department of Mechanical Engineering of the Ecole de Technologie Superieure in August 2002. He is a senior member of the IEEE and the Publication Chair of the AdCom of the Dielectric and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS). He has published more than 150 scientific publications (proceedings and journal papers).
