Pat Bazeley was awarded a PhD in community psychology for an action research based thesis which argued that community development was an effective strategy for the promotion of mental health in a disadvantaged population. After graduating she worked in community development and as a freelance researcher, undertaking projects in public health, welfare, education, law and community studies. From 1991-9 she was responsible for research development and administration for academic staff at the University of Western Sydney, Macarthur. Currently, she is a (very) part time Associate Professor in the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity at the University of New South Wales, supervising PhD students. From 2000-2013 Pat provided research training, consulting and retreat facilities for researchers at Bowral, in the southern highlands of NSW. She continues to provide occasional training and consulting services for academics, graduate students and practitioners in universities, government departments and commercial organisations both locally and internationally. Her particular expertise is in helping researchers to make sense of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods data and in using computer programs for management and analysis of data. Her passion is to help people move beyond simple descriptive analyses of rich data. Pat has a particular interest in mixed methods research, where she is exploring tools and techniques for integrating analyses of different forms of data, and the methodological implications of doing so. She was 2015-16 President of the Mixed Methods International Research Association. Pat is currently on the Editorial Boards for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research and Qualitative Health Research, having served in the past as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Mixed Methods Research. She has published books, chapters and articles on qualitative and mixed methods data analysis. She has also published on immunisation services, and on the career development and performance of researchers. Kristi Jackson has a Masters of Education degree from the University of Vermont and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Education from the University of Colorado. She began using qualitative data analysis software in 1993, has been an expert and trainer of the QSR software (NUD*IST and NVivo) since 1996, became Vice President of an evaluation firm in Denver in 1999, and established Queri in 2002. She spends a third of her time collecting data for evaluation research projects (primarily in education and health), a third of her time using NVivo to analyze data, and a third of her time consulting with (and training) other researchers. Along with Pat Bazeley, she co-authored the most recent Sage book on Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo, and she is a principal organizer of the Digital Tools strand at the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry. Her current research interests include conceptualizations of "transparency" in the qualitative research process, particularly among doctoral students and their dissertation committees.
