Inspiring Stories 040 – Dr Margaret Dominguez

Margaret grew up on a pig farm in Mexico and her love for Physics fuelled an incredible meteoric journey to becoming an optical engineer at NASA.

In this episode we talk about:

  • A serendipitous moment enabled her to apply for an internship at NASA.
  • How support systems make us brave because they believe in us until we can fully believe in ourselves.
  • The work from her PhD thesis now being a component of the mission to launch the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope in 3-4 years.
