Ignite Binghamton University
Ignite is a forum for thinkers and innovators to share their stories, and do it quickly. Each presenter gets 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds, amounting to five minutes of succinct enlightenment.
More than 350 Ignite events have been held in cities all over the map. The first Ignite talks in upstate New York were held in April 2019 as part of Binghamton University's Research Days. Eight graduate students and a postdoctoral researcher from a variety of fields told the story of their research and why it matters.
The inaugural event featured:
Mariama Coulibaly, a doctoral student in the College of Community and Public Affairs, speaking about community-based participatory action in the Congo
Jayne Hoffman, a doctoral student in the College of Community and Public Affairs, presenting on access to higher education among Latino populations
Postdoctoral fellow Jozef Dingemans from Binghamton’s department of biological sciences on antibiotic resistance in biofilm bacteria

Stacy Ellenberg, a doctoral student in clinical psychology, on how smartphones are changing psychology
Summer Bottini, a doctoral student in clinical psychology on how instructional errors affect the learning process

Kate Lanza, a doctoral student in behavioral neuroscience, speaking about improving treatments for Parkinson’s disease
Ishika Chakrabarty, a doctoral student in systems science and industrial engineering, presenting on treating mental illness with mindfulness
