Barbara Ibinarriaga Soltero
Research student, School of Social Sciences
I am a psychologist with experience in developing, delivering and investigating mindfulness-based interventions in educational settings in Mexico. I was trained as a mindfulness facilitator and the use of body awareness practices at the Human Ecology Programme, School of Psychology at UNAM (Mexico City), before studying my MSc in Social Science Research Methods (Psychology) at Cardiff University. At the moment, I am interested in bringing first and second-person perspectives to my PhD research, and I am employing qualitative methods to study the social and cultural aspects involved in the implementation of contemplative practices, mindfulness and meditation in Mexico. My doctorate research is being funded by CONACyT (National Council of Science and Technology).
