As an anthropologist and methodologist, my career has been dedicated to advancing methods for qualitative analysis. I have expertise in a wide range of methods for qualitative analysis including theme identification, codebook development, systematic coding, and comparative analysis. I am a faculty member charged with teaching text analysis for the US National Science Foundation’s Short Courses in Research Methods in Cultural Anthropology, and previously served as faculty for the US National Science Foundation’s Summer Institute for Research Design. Over the last decade, I have also regularly taught text analysis in workshops run by the American Anthropology Association, Society for Applied Anthropology, and the Arizona State University Institute for Social Science Research. I enjoy teaching research methods and consulting on research design, data collection, and data analysis for qualitative and mixed-methods research.
