Mona has been a Jayhawk since 2020, when she arrived at KU as a Fulbright scholar to pursue her M.S. degree in Civil Engineering, focusing on structural vibrations, vibration mitigation, and dynamics. Currently, she is pursuing her Ph.D., and her research is an extension of her master's degree project. Mona enjoys being a GEA ambassador, as she likes to stay active wherever she is. Through GEA, she can plan events and engage with fellow engineering students. She enjoys attending various international student events, which allow her to learn and meet people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Mona loves traveling and being in nature. Her goal is to visit as many national parks in the US as possible before the end of her PhD.
