About My Guest
Dr. Ekaterina “Kat” Cleary is a scientist, a daughter, a wife, a cat-mom, a writer, and a mentor. Data scientist by day, she is deeply engaged in public health policy and writing about the affordability of pharmaceutical drugs. As a newly minted consultant at Exponent, Kat enjoys discovering interesting patterns in healthcare data and teaching visualization to students of all ages.
Originally from Siberia, Kat has been a proud New Englander for almost three decades. She has a great fondness for animals and lives with her husband and two cats. This spring she self-published her debut children’s book “Adventures of Pierre the Munchkin” under the pseudonym Dr. Kat. Pierre’s story, based on true events, has had global reach and has become an inspiration for children to write their own adventure books.
Having braved the unknown on several occasions, Kat encourages young professionals to view themselves as a “Mockingjay” and inspire others to start their own personal revolutions.
