About me

I am an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow in the School of Mathematics at The University of Edinburgh.

My field of research is algebraic geometry, with a particular emphasis on derived categories and birational geometry.

We are having a workshop on Derived Categories and Moduli Spaces at the University of Stavanger, Norway, from 8-10 September 2015.

My first name is pronounced in exactly the same way as "Kieran" - it's just my way of spelling it is closer to the celtic origin of the name; there are approximately thirty different variations of the name in English and other languages. My surname is pronounced "Meekan" and is an anglicised spelling of the Gaelic name "Miadhachain" - the origins of Clan Miadhachain can be traced back to County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland before splitting into MacMiadhachain for those who emigrated to Scotland in the 5th century and O'Miadhachain for those remained in Ireland.
