I am engaged in social science research methods in many ways. My expertise lies in the field of qualitative research methods. Specifically, I'm especially something qualitative interviewing and different forms of qualitative analysis such as Grounded Theory, Content Analysis, Discourse analysis and Ethnomethodology. I am an enthusiastic user of the qualitative analysis software ATLAS.ti since 1999, I am also well-aquainted with survey methodology and mixed methods research.

In 1999 I graduated in Sociology of Non-Western Societies in Leiden, on a thesis on the use of Ethnicity by Muslims in Galle in Sri Lanka. Since my graduation, the main focus of my work is on social science research methods. Initially I worked as an assistant to Dr. Wim Dechering in the project on multimedia education in social research methodology. Later this was a lecturer / PhD student at the Department for Research Methods and Techniques at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Since 2006 I work at the University of Amsterdam.
