MAXQDA Professional Trainer:
Qualitative Evaluation, Thematic Analysis
I work with individuals and teams that are looking to use MAXQDA to effectively manage projects, especially team-based analysis done at a distance through virtual platforms.
I hold a Master’s in Education from Harvard, where I studied International Education Policy. My research interests include issues of trust and relationship building in educational organizations. Since 2019, I have worked with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Division of Extension as a data analyst and trainer. I have led numerous qualitative research projects ranging from individual program evaluations to large-scale organizational undertakings. I train colleagues and student evaluators on how to conduct analysis as part of a team in MAXQDA. In addition, I manage access to our division’s network license, field troubleshooting, and help requests as needed.
