Originally from Europe, Kiro started working with dairy cows at age of 11. With a lifelong interest in animals and animal health, after completing my undergraduate education Kiro worked for 2.5 years as a veterinary practitioner in Europe with production animals and occasionally companion animals, before migrating to New Zealand where he worked as a veterinarian for 3.5 years mainly in mixed animal practice, before taking up the research and lecturer position with special interest in lactational physiology and bovine mastitis at the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences (IVABS), Massey University, New Zealand. As recognition of his research in the area of lactational physiology and pathology, Kiro was a co-leader of the Mastitis Research Centre team at Massey University (2006 – 2012) together with Prof Norman Williamson. In January 2012, Kiro moved to a position of Senior Lecturer in Ruminant Health (Cattle) at the University of Adelaide, Roseworthy Campus
