Her work attends to developing mathematical knowledge for teaching in practice, understanding the nature of teacher learning, and understanding the nature of pedagogies of teacher education that prepare novice teachers for practice. Professor Ghousseini received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. She has several years of experience teaching elementary and middle school mathematics.
