Mercedes Pena


I recently graduated from UC Merced with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Natural Sciences Education. I am currently conducting research on the effect of mindfulness-based interventions on mindfulness and stress outcomes and exploring mediation in this effect. I hope to attend a psychology graduate program and earn a PhD to continue researching topics such as stress, mindfulness, health, and intervention accessibility especially among minoritized and underserved populations. In my free time, I enjoy baking, watching movies, and listening to podcasts.
