 Research interests


Social Work & Sustainable Development

I am interested in community development for environmental justice and environmental rights, resilience to overcome environmental problems, youth movements for sustainable development, green care (animal and gardening in social work), and eco-social work approaches to social work education and practice

Computer-assisted Qualitative Data Analysis

I have a particular interest in developing analytical models for quantitative analysis from qualitative data (‘big data’). I have mostly use ATLAS-ti for my publications on models related to Abductive Thematic Network Analysis and Deductive Critical Discourse Analysis. I have a good knowledge of Nvivo. I can also manage SPSS (quantitative data analysis software) for testing models from qualitative data analysis.
