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.
