about me


on LinkedIn | @nkotamraju

I currently work as Vice President of User Research & Analytics at Salesforce, the world’s #1 customer relationship management (CRM) platform, where I lead a team that drives insights for product design and development.

I’ve also led UX research teams at Microsoft Dynamics, Sun Microsystems, and assorted dot.coms. Previously as Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark, I taught, researched, and published about people’s relationship to technology. And even earlier, I worked on the organizing team of the historic NGO Forum on Women ’95 Beijing (the NGO complement to the United Nations Conference for Women).

I earned my B.A. in Social Studies and my B.A. in Women’s Studies from Harvard College and my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California at Berkeley.
