As Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge (MSRC), Natasa Milic-Frayling is setting research directions for Integrated Systems group, focussing on the design, prototyping and evaluation of information and communication systems and services. She also serves as Director of Research Partnership with industry, the MSRC programme that she started in 2004 to facilitate collaboration between MS Research, MS teams across EMEA, and Microsoft clients and partners.
The programme reaches out to leading industry organizations who wish to exchange knowledge and experience in specific areas of research and collaborate on tackling strategic problems. As a result MSR Cambridge works with consortia of partners on the EU sponsored project PLANETS, focussed on long term preservation of digital content, and the CFMS programme looking at rich context of engineering workflows and ways to capture and disseminate knowledge and best practices

Prior to joining Microsoft Research, she worked at Claritech Corporation (currently JustSystems Evans Research), a spin-off company from Carnegie-Mellon University, acquired by the Justsystem Corporation of Japan in 1996. There she served as Director of Research.
