Mona is a first-year graduate student in the Educational Neuroscience concentration of The University of Alabama's Educational Psychology program. Having been a cellular/molecular neuroscience researcher as well as a math/science high school teacher in the past, she is very interested in developing more accessible ways of communicating scientific research to non-scientists, as well as working with educators to develop research addressing educational and instructional needs. In the program, her focus is on numerical and mathematical processing in monolinguals vs. bilinguals/multilinguals. Mona is interested in studying how encoding and retrieval processes differ between these populations, and the degree to which these processes are age- and context-dependent.
