Meet Gozel Aamoth, Sr. Director, Research & Insights Operations & Program Management at Salesforce

February 26, 2021

We are lucky to have so many wonderful sponsors of this year’s Advancing Research conference–and we thought you might like to get to know them better! We’ve asked all of them some questions that get at the heart of why they’re passionate about user research and ResearchOps, what it’s like to work with them, and what makes their products and services special to research professionals.
