Kiran was born in the great state of Massachusetts in the city of Worcester (pronounced wus-tahh) and attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he received a BS degree in biochemistry. He remained in Massachusetts for medical school where he attended the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is a die-hard Boston sports fan and did cry with the departure of Thomas Edward Brady from the Patriots (RIP) this past year. Both his parents are immigrants from India and he is fluent in Tamil, one of the primary languages in South India. For enjoyment he plays soccer, tennis and Call of Duty. His favorite parts about being at Wake Forest are the community, co-residents and the sweet breweries scattered throughout Winston.
