Dr. Kirby has written extensively on the subjects of foot orthotics, biomechanics and sports medicine. In 1997, he authored a book, "Foot and Lower Extremity Biomechanics: A Ten Year Collection of Precision Intricast Newsletters", which has been sold to podiatrists in over seven countries. He has authored or coauthored a total of eleven scientific/medical papers in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, he has authored chapters on the conservative treatment of pediatric flatfoot deformity and on troubleshooting foot orthotics in two podiatric medical textbooks. Dr. Kirby is frequently invited to lecture both nationally and internationally on the subjects of foot orthotics, biomechanics and sports medicine and has given numerous lectures in New Zealand, Great Britain, Canada, and throughout the United States.

In addition to his academic and professional accomplishments, Dr. Kirby is an accomplished marathon runner and still continues to run for exercise.
