What is Mona's dream challenge she'd love to work on?
The physical environment is ever-present and small changes to its set up can have a big impact on the way we process information, make decisions, and interact with others. There is so much un-tapped potential for exploring the intersection between physical environments and human behavior, and I would love to tackle challenges where we can make big impacts on people’s lives through small changes in the way we set up our everyday spaces.
