Mahboubeh joined CISUR in 2015 through her Mitacs post-doctoral research award with UBC. She is interested in using engaged philosophical inquiry (EPI) in different educational contexts and in developing teaching/learning resources. Since 2015, Mahboubeh has focused on using EPI as both the content and means of professional development for K-12 teachers in order to help facilitate a non-stereotyped, open, and thoughtful discussion on drug use related topics. She is also involved in a number of other ongoing projects within the Institute.
