Before arriving in Stockholm he took a Masters degree in Sociology at the University of Oxford, and a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Sociology at the University of Surrey. He has also studied Psychology and Sociology at the University of Maryland at College Park in the United States, and Mandarin at Tsinghua University, in Beijing, China.

Kieron's is currently conducting research on three main areas: sex ratios, birth order, and social networks. His research on sex ratios concerns how the sex composition of a given environment can affect health and health behaviours, including mortality, morbidity, and sickness absenteeism, with a particular focus upon the workplace. The research he is conducting on birth order addresses how ordinal position within the sibling group can affect outcomes later in life, such as educational attainment, and mortality. Finally, his work on social networks concentrates on the relationship between social network structure and a range of different outcomes for young adults in Sweden.
