Author Biography

Silvana di Gregorio, SdG Associates
Silvana di GREGORIO received her PhD in social policy and administration from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has worked in several applied research settings including the Nuffield Centre for Health Services Studies, University of Leeds, and the Department of Social Policy, Cranfield University, where she was involved in numerous practitioner-research studies. She was Director of Graduate Research Training at Cranfield School of Management during the 1990s where she developed her interest in methodological issues, particularly looking at the affordances of software to support the analysis of qualitative data. In 1996, she resigned her position at Cranfield to focus on consulting and teaching on a range of packages that support qualitative analysis. SdG Associates is her consulting business. She is coauthor with Judith DAVIDSON of "Qualitative Research Design for Software Users" (2008), which addresses both methodological and practical issues related to working with qualitative data analysis software packages—regardless of which brand of package is used. She is also exploring the use of Web 2.0 tools to support the analysis of qualitative data. She is on the Advisory Board of the European Chapter of the Merlien Institute, which promotes innovations in qualitative research.
