Kiyoshi is an instructor of Physics and Biology.  He received his BA from Johns Hopkins University and his Master’s Degree from University of California, San Francisco, both in the discipline of Biophysics. He has spent a number of years in academia, becoming a published researcher in various topics ranging from how movement is processed in the brain to how proteins in a cell work. These experiences highlight his drive for teaching and learning, which he hopes to instill in his students at SIL.

Outside of the classroom Kiyoshi lives in San Francisco with his wife and two children, along with two cats, two turtles, three bearded dragons, a tank full of guppies and snails, a robot vacuum named Chumley, and not enough coffee.
