Experience

I have been a MAXQDA trainer since 2012 and have delivered introductory courses to academic staff, research teams, undergraduate and postgraduate students. My classes range from one-to-one training of individual researchers to classroom based modules with postgraduate students. In 2016 I joined the team at the Children’s Research Network for Ireland and Northern Ireland and I can organise tailored MAXQDA sessions for members of the Network, for small groups. I am a co-author of the sociology text book Family rhythms. The changing textures of family life in Ireland (2016, Manchester University Press), for which we used MAXQDA for a qualitative longitudinal, cross-dataset analysis over 200 qualitative interview transcripts. My background is in Sociology, and I have a Master’s degree in Applied Social Research Methods from Trinity College Dublin (2009) and a Professional Diploma in Teaching from Maynooth University (2015). I have been working as a professional researcher in the university and public sector since 2008, am experienced in evaluation research, research with children and young adults, social policy and the family, research with archival data, and mixed methods research.
