I was trained to use MAXQDA in 2010 and have since used it on three team-based research projects. I have been training others to use it since 2011. I have conducted two weeklong summer workshops with anthropologists (2015, 2016) and a daylong workshop (2016). I also co-organized an international workshop in Italy (2014). I am an ethnographer who believes that qualitative data analysis software is a great tool to add to our toolkit.
