Consulting Research Groups/Individuals


Since 2014 I have been regularly using MAXQDA daily. My first experience using MAXQDA was during the study of socioeconomic development trends under rapid tourism furtherance in mountainous Georgia. The research was conducted in the frame of an international project “AMIESII: Scenario Development for Sustainable Land Use in the Greater Caucasus, Georgia”.

Throughout these years, I used MAXQDA in several local and international impactful scientific research projects funded by Volkswagen Foundation, Austrian Development Cooperation, Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation, etc., Moreover, based on the revealed findings through indepth and transparent data analysis in MAXQDA several articles have been published in the peerreviewed and impact factor Journals.

Right now, I am focusing on teaching MAXQDA courses primarily at Tbilisi State University and on offering consulting services to individuals or research teams, which work with qualitative methods, grounded theory, analysis of qualitative interviews or other textual data.
