Dr. Kathryn Neugent

I'm currently a senior data scientist working on the user behavior & economics team at CableLabs! My academic background is in both computer science and astronomy, and until recently (July 2023), I was a NASA Hubble Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard. In my free time, I enjoy cuddling with my cats (Andy and Abby), and hiking with my husband, Garrett!

To learn more about me and what I've been up to, please take a look around!

Five fun facts about me:

  1. I have an asteroid named after me! Watch (165192) Neugent move here and here.
  2. I'm on the board of an amazing cat rescue organization in Colorado Springs called Look What The Cat Brought In and Garrett and I adopted Andy from there in 2022.
  3. One of my life goals is to hike to all of the lakes in Rocky Mountain National Park. Track my progress (and photos!) here!
  4. I have too many hobbies than I have time for including: hiking, backpacking, photography, knitting, crocheting, weight lifting, cycling (spinning), baking, and learning way too much about the bears of Katmai. I'd also love to get back into playing piano, singing in a choir, and fostering cats.
  5. And last but very much not least, I'm passionate about advocating for disability rights and destigmatizing discussing mental health in academia and the workplace.
