For over six years, I have been handling various types of unstructured data with the help of MAXQDA. The journey started with the international project “Scenario Development for Sustainable Land Use in the Greater Caucasus, Georgia”. Since the first successful experience I have been continuing exploring the worthwhile tools of MAXQDA under various international or local research projects, through partnering with the University of Giessen, National Science Foundation of Georgia, Tbilisi State University, UNDP, Tolerance and Diversity Institute, etc.,

Currently, as a Head of the Research and Service Department at the National Agency for Crime Prevention and Probation (Ministry of Justice of Georgia), I plan to promote a transparent way of qualitative data analysis. The utilization of special software will be precedential for the state
institutes in Georgia.

Throughout these years, my colleague Ms. Salukvadze and I introduced the concept of Computer-Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis and software MAXQDA to students and young scholars from different disciplines as well as practitioners of several fields.
