In 2014, Kieran was Handa Research Fellow at CSTPV, completing a report entitled Scotland and Separatism: Reverberations of the Scottish Independence Referendum on Separatist Politics. His research interests include ethno-nationalist terrorism, nationalism and the politics of independence movements, and state and media discourses on terrorism.
