I hold a PhD in Social Anthropology (2015) from the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). I began using MAXQDA in 2015, on a cross-cultural project about models of nature and climate change perceptions, on which ethnographers working in several continents agreed to explore a blended set of qualitative and quantitative strategies. My contribution focused indigenous dwellers in the Amazon River adjacencies, among which I have been conducting ethnographic research since 2008. I used MAXQDA to analyze a set a 15 free-lists and 18 interviews at the word-, sentence-, and discourse-levels, combining word frequency, semantic role, causal relations, and reasoning analysis.

Since 2015, I have been testing and broadening my skills on the many functions and tools provided by MAXQDA. I also have experience with other software for Network Analysis, Visualization, and Mapping.
