Ramon Sanchez is a certified professional in sustainability, renewable energies, climate change vulnerability assessments and regional preparedness plans, sustainable manufacturing techniques, and technology innovation.
Sanchez received a ScD in environmental health from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), he previously received a MS in environmental health management from HSPH, and both an MS in manufacturing systems and technology innovation and a BS in mechanical engineering from the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico. Before coming to Harvard, Sanchez was a corporate engineering manager in a company dedicated to the design and manufacture of furniture and electronic consumer goods. He oversaw seven departments in which hundreds of workers and engineers created and built products that generated approximately $180 million a year in revenues.
Sanchez has fifteen records of invention and four patents in the United States and Europe. From 2000 to 2003 he worked as a forward products lead engineer at Delphi Automotive Systems, a former division of General Motors, dedicated to the design and manufacturing of electronic components and automotive systems. As an automotive designer, he was a member of a research group that won the National Technology Award in Mexico in 2002. That same year, Ramon got the Best Teacher Award of Monterrey Institute of Technology for developing the first lean manufacturing and innovation engineering classes in Mexico.
Sanchez's main research interests are corporate sustainability, green manufacturing, energy management in buildings, carbon accounting, life-cycle assessment for industrial operations, climate change vulnerability and regional preparedness, carbon capture from thermoelectric power plants, health and environmental effects of renewable energies, and the development of renewable fuels with micro-algae species.
