Memo is a research associate at the department of environmental health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. His research focuses on developing tools that leverage the data collection potential for mobile health quasi-experimental studies of the built environment. He has conducted research that advances the understanding of mechanisms by which climate changed-related environmental exposures impact health, productivity, and safety; provides evidence linking energy efficiency opportunities in buildings to public health co-benefits; and provides disaster response resources to characterize environmental exposures and evaluate their health effects during and after critical events. Currently, Memo is coordinating research efforts on exposure to chemicals and health through the Marilyn Hoffman Program, which aims to advance our understanding of the health consequences of chemicals and other toxins, especially among vulnerable populations.
Memo holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Monterrey Tech and worked in the automotive industry in both Mexico and Germany. He then received a M.S. degree in Energy Engineering from Aachen University, in Germany. In 2014, he graduated from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health with a Sc.D. degree in Environmental Health.
