Dr. Lachemi is an expert in the use of high-performance materials such as self-consolidation concrete and high-performance concrete in construction. He is well recognized for his pioneering work and significant research contributions toward reducing global environmental impacts of the construction industry through the development of high-performance materials and innovative construction technologies. His research has led to several industrial applications, over 100 peer-reviewed technical publications, and the training of dozens of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. He has also been involved in numerous collaborative industrial projects, including an international project leading to the construction of the world’s first reactive powder concrete structure. Dr. Lachemi's work has received several awards and recognitions, including a Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Construction from 2002-10. In June 2011, Dr. Lachemi was inducted as a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, one of the highest academic honours for Canadian engineers.

In April 2016, Dr. Lachemi was appointed as president and vice-chancellor of Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson).
