Kiran Joshi, PhD'90

I have published a book called Faith and Perseverance – My Journey in October 2023. I am a long-time Bay Area resident who has been on a spiritual journey from a young age. I completed a PhD in chemistry from the University of British Columbia. This book is a compilation of my experiences dealing with breast cancer, immigration to Canada as a teenager, the family sacrifices that got me to the university, the job search and career that got me to the executive level, working at a start-up company in the Silicon Valley, and then learning to let it all go as everything disperses, including our bodies, titles, and possessions.

The book website is The book is available on Amazon. 50% of net proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to charity.
