This year I became MAXQDA Certified Trainer. I've been working with the MAXQDA software since 2015 and in that period, I've given many face-to-face workshops and countless webinars.

I have provided occasional training and online support in data analysis software for over 30 years, including for conducting scientific research.

In 2018 I completed a PhD in applied social sciences at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, as a researcher I used MAXQDA and worked on several successive research projects after that.

I believe that MAXQDA is the best software to work on data analysis in academic research projects.
