      Research Interests

      - International management
      - Knowledge transfer and innovation in MNEs
      - Subsidiary strategy, power and influence
      - Corporate and regional headquarters strategy


      Kieran’s research focuses on the behaviour of multinational enterprises both internally in terms of power and influence between headquarters and subsidiaries and externally in local economies through knowledge transfer and innovation. The dynamics of multinationals in Ireland and how Irish subsidiaries have developed influential mandates is of particular interest, especially in the Medical Device Industry. 

      Other research interests include the evolving role of the corporate and regional headquarters in a networked multinational. The interactions that these multinationals have with local institutional and business networks is another major research focus. 


      PhD Supervision

      I am interested in hearing from potential international collaborators and prospective PhD students in these areas.
