Consulting for research groups and individuals in qualitative research design.


I have been a MAXQDA for qualitative data analysis and beyond since 2013. I hold a BA and an MA in English Language Teaching with concentrations in applied linguistics and teacher education, and I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the same program. I would be happy to help researchers specializing in these areas in designing their research studies. I have used MAXQDA for my MA thesis and Ph.D. dissertation and for several other studies I conducted as part of my graduate coursework. 

As a qualitatively-oriented researcher, I am happy to help other users - especially novice researchers - explore qualitative research and learn how they can use MAXQDA to enrich their research experiences. I can work with individuals or teams and deliver workshops that are uniquely designed to meet their specific needs. I have given several workshops to groups of researchers who would like to familiarize themselves with qualitative data analysis on MAXQDA.
