I provide research, development, training and consulting to universities, government, organisations and individuals in Australia and around the world.

I run workshops and provide consultations for universities (staff and students), government departments, industry and individuals. The workshops are largely based around Qualitative methodology and/or qualitative research software. I provide consultations on research projects for HDR students, academics, government and industry.

Listed below are some of the different types of workshops and consultancies I offer. I am happy to tailor something specific to your needs, so please contact me if you would like more information. The best way is to fill out this form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


NVivo for a literature review

This workshop introduces NVivo and is suitable for all researchers. In the workshop, I cover:

  • How to import material from reference programs such as Endnote
  • Importing material from the internet
  • How to take notes in NVivo,
  • How to best use search features in NVivo such as text search PDF’s
  • How to code and structure literature as well as notes using NVivo 
  • Ways to manage reading lists and references

By the end of the workshop attendees will:

  • Have a basic understanding on how to use NVivo
  • How to get the most out of their literature using NVivo

Getting started with NVivo

This workshop is an introduction to NVivo and is suitable for researchers using qualitative methodology. It is best suited to those who have collected or are in the process of collecting data. In this course, I provide an overview of all the features of NVivo and take participants through the software so they can start analysing data using NVivo. Participants will know the tools available in NVivo and have a clear understanding of which tools will best assist with the analysis of their specific research. I also discuss different analysis techniques grounded in qualitative methodology.

By the end of this workshop, participants will know how to:

  • Import data into NVivo from a variety of sources (documents, excel, video and audio files, pictures, web content)
  • Create and move nodes around
  • Code a variety of data types (such as documents, video, audio, web content)
  • Approach the analysis and coding of their data
  • Run a text search query and word frequency query

There will be time at the end of the workshop for students to work with their own data and ask questions that pertain to their own projects.

NVivo: Further exploration of data

This workshop is suited to students who have a basic understanding of NVivo, have collected data and started their analysis using NVivo. In this course I demonstrate the queries and visualisations that NVivo can perform based on coded data. These features allow researchers to see their data through different lenses and are useful for exploring different relationships and themes that may emerge from the data.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Create classifications and attribute categories such as demographic data for participants.
  • Run a variety of queries in NVivo such as: Text Search, Coding Queries, Matrix coding and compound queries, as well as understand when and where to use them.
  • Visualise their data in NVivo using tools such as diagrams, graphs, charts and models.

There will be time at the end of the workshop for students to work with their own data and ask questions that pertain to their own projects.


I provide training to teach people how to use the following software for qualitative research analysis:

  • Quirkos
  • Delve
  • Dedoose

If you would like to learn one of these programs, please get in contact using the form below.

Qualitative Methodology, Analysis and Research Questions

This workshop covers the foundations of qualitative methodology explaining concepts such as epistemology and theoretical perspectives that are fundamental to all qualitative research. This is followed by a presentation on different analysis techniques, as determined by the methodology. The workshop concludes with guidance on how to develop a good single overarching research question.

This workshop can be broken down into parts or added to another workshop. It is best run alongside individual consultancies so participants have a chance to ask questions and get guidance specific to their own research.



I can assist with your data analysis. Using the method and means of your choice, I can help you analyse your qualitative research data. Please not that I do not do this for student-based research (including masters and doctorate students), however I can provide coaching and training if you are a student on how to best approach analysis for your research.

Individual and team-based consultancies:

I consult with individuals and research teams on their specific projects. I provide them with guidance on how to move forward with their research dependent on their topic and methodology being employed. I can also be employed to do analysis for your research project*. I also assist with the following:

  • Help researchers determine which methodology they have used
  • Facilitate the development of a sound research question
  • Guide on the best way to approach analysis (with or without software)

If using software:

  • Teach how to use the software
  • Best ways to set up the project based on their research
  • Ways to approach analysis using the software.

Project based consultancies:

I provide consultancies for research projects. Based on the research area, topic and question, I advise on the best way to set-up the project in NVivo, and the tools and features that would be the best fit and most appropriate for the project such as queries, visualisations, and classifications.
