Dr. Megan Madonna
Dr. Madonna is the Director of Ignite and Assistant Director of Education of the Center for Global Women’s Health Technologies at Duke University. Her hope is to build Ignite as a tool to increase students' interest in perusing STEM, specifically engineering, as their future careers and encourage all students to use engineering to solve problems in their communities.
She is currently at Stanford School of Medicine, after graduating from Duke in 2017 with a BS in Neuroscience. Since 2016, she has been collaborating with Dr. Madonna to implement Ignite in Guatemala through the Guatemala foundation she co-founded: FUNDEGUA.
She completed a MSc in Social Psychology from the University of Groningen after graduating from her BSc in Psychology from the same university in 2019. She is the lead coordinator of Ignite’s implementation in Guatemala and the development of Ignite’s virtual platform in Spanish as part of the Guatemalan organization FUNDEGUA.
