Kevin is from Rougemont, North Carolina and completed his undergraduate training with a BS in Biology at Davidson College in 2010. Afterwards, he attended medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a part of the MSTP program. There, he earned his PhD in Pathology in 2017 and completed his dissertation research on genetic and epigenetic regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell differentiation. In his final year of medical school, he worked with the Division of Vascular Surgery at UNC on several projects, one of which was determining outcomes after TEVAR for traumatic aortic injury.
In 2019, he graduated from UNC School of Medicine and matched into the Integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program at the University of Michigan. While in vascular surgery residency, he has pursued clinical and research interests in epigenetic regulation of diabetic wound healing and AAA formation.
