I have used and taught MAXQDA since 2005, having taught at Emory University until 2022, when I moved to Brown University's School of Public Health. I have also taught in Spanish at the summer PASPE institute at the Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública in Mexico. I have taught MAXQDA hundreds of students in formal classes, but especially enjoy working with interdisciplinary research teams to address their analysis challenges and learn to use the software to facilitate their theoretical and methodological approaches to their projects. 

My signature course is a one-week intensive designed for novice analysts who want to learn how to approach qualitative analysis as well as MAXQDA software. This course is available in English and Spanish. I am also pleased to develop custom courses for specific groups as requested. 

I also have a three-course self-guided specialization on qualitative research on the Coursera platform. The third course in the series introduces MAXQDA software as well as thematic analysis:
