Bibiana is an MSc student in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of British Columbia. She is currently completing her Master’s research in Dr. Lori Brotto’s UBC Sexual Health Laboratory. She completed her BSc in Biological Sciences with a minor Psychology: Brain and Cognition at the University of Guelph in 2019. Bibiana’s interest in sexual health began at Guelph, where she presented research on the sexual health of midlife Canadians. Currently, she is leading the INTROSPPECT study, which examines the use of Mindfulness and CBT interventions for prostate cancer survivors and their partners who are experiencing sexual dysfunction. The goal of her Master’s work is to translate the research into a useful format for prostate cancer survivors, their partners, and the medical professionals who treat them.
