Biography

Mirka E. Koro is a professor of qualitative research. Koro's scholarship operates in the intersection of methodology, philosophy, and socio-cultural critique. Her work aims to contribute to methodological knowledge, experimentation, and theoretical development across various traditions associated with qualitative research. She specifically works with theories from post-positivism to new materialism, from domain analysis to rhizoanalysis and post-human critique.

Professor Koro has studied and written about research designs broadly defined, data, different methods, research participation, validity, representation, writing, and various problems with simplicity, technicality, and neoliberal pressures affecting contemporary qualitative research. Professor Koro is currently involved in multiple methodological and conceptual projects including data, methodologies without methodologies, decentering and rethinking academic-writing-conference-machine, and potentialities associated with knowledge.
