Dr. Benjamin Ostrowski is a People Researcher at Atlassian, where he works to understand how teams collaborate effectively and designs interventions to help them work together better. He is fascinated by understanding how people collaborate to leverage their diverse talents, perspectives, and resources.
Dr. Ostrowski has taught courses at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, along with working as a researcher at Duolingo and at Humu, an HR Tech startup. He is also Executive Director of the Southeastern CT Organization for Racial Equity (501[c]), a non-profit organization committed to anti-racist action with the ultimate goal of making people of color feel heard, safe, and welcome in his home state of Connecticut.
Ben loves to travel, hike, and experience different cultures, including recent trips to Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Ecuador. At home, he and his wife love to rock climb, go to improv comedy shows, or play video games (well, he does). They also care for a giant goofy dog named Malcolm, a tiny adventurous cat named Bee, and an even tinier kitten named Basil.
