Josué Meléndez Rodríguez




I serve as the D-Lab Qualitative Research Lead at the University of California, Berkeley. In that capacity, I facilitate and arrange workshops, presentations, and consultations on qualitative research. The workshops I facilitate myself include Introduction to Qualitative Research, Parts 1 & 2, as well as Introduction to MAXQDA, Parts 1 & 2. The consultations I provide for qualitative research typically focus on selection of methodology, development of coding scheme, and use of software.

I have earned two graduate degrees from Michigan State University: a Master of Arts in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education with a Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning, and a Master of Social Work in Organizational and Community Practice (now Organizational and Community Leadership). My undergraduate studies in Social Work were completed at Loyola University Chicago. In addition to my academic training, I have over ten years of practice experience in education, community, and healthcare institutions in both the public and nonprofit sectors.

I invite you to explore the other sections of my website to learn more about my work and professional interests, and contact me if you have questions, comments, and/or are interested in collaborating.
