Biography I teach and conduct research in the intersecting areas of qualitative and critical psychology, sexuality and gender, family and relationships, and appearance and embodiment. My books include the market leading and award winning textbook Successful Qualitative Research. My most recent book is Collecting Qualitative Data. I am particularly known for my work on qualitative methods and thematic analysis (TA) with Virginia Braun. We are currently writing a book on TA for Sage Publications. According to Google Scholar our original paper on TA is the most cited academic paper published in 2006. You can read more about our approach on our TA website at The University of Auckland.
