Kearney's research interests are broad; she is especially interested in the effects of anthropogenic disturbances on ecosystem structure and function. Her current research questions focus on the impact of a range of human disturbances on soil structure and function.

Kearney is also interested in science education. Specifically, creating classes that apply evidence-based best-teaching practices in the university setting and developing effective tools for evaluating student learning.

Additionally, she is fascinated by the application of art as a means of science communication and is likewise interested in the ways in which art can enhance the sciences.
