I have been a MAXQDA-Trainer since 2010 and have given training to peers, data collectors, data analysts, students in Low and Middle Income Countries. I am a medical doctor with Masters in Health Economics and currently pursuing a PhD in health economics. I also do systematic reviews with Cochrane and I am a scientific committee member on Guidleines International Network and International Society of Pharmaco-Economics and Research Outcome. I have used MAXQDA for analyzing qualitative interviews based on Grounded Theory Methodology during my dissertation. I have developed a strong interest in Mixed Method approaches, which I am happy to share in my workshops or to apply as a consulting service for interested research groups.
