J. H. C. Whitehead spends much of his time researching Combinatorics, Pure mathematics, Homotopy group, Homotopy and Group. In the subject of general Combinatorics, his work in Automorphism, Polyhedron and Simply connected space is often linked to Spherical polyhedron, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Pure mathematics research includes themes of Sequence and Boundary.

His research in Homotopy group tackles topics such as Algebraic number which are related to areas like Isomorphism, Invariant theory, Fundamental group, Topological space and Group ring. His research on Homotopy frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Crossed module. The concepts of his Group study are interwoven with issues in Exact sequence and Homomorphism.

His main research concerns Pure mathematics, Combinatorics, Homotopy, Homotopy group and Homotopy sphere. He undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Pure mathematics and SPHERES in his work. His work carried out in the field of Combinatorics brings together such families of science as Piecewise linear function, Type and Piecewise.

His Homotopy group study incorporates themes from Tetrad, Isomorphism, Group and Homomorphism. He usually deals with Homotopy sphere and limits it to topics linked to Eilenberg–MacLane space and Mathematical analysis. His research in n-connected intersects with topics in Homotopy category and Cohomotopy group.

His primary areas of investigation include Pure mathematics, Homotopy, Euclidean space, Combinatorics and Manifold. When carried out as part of a general Pure mathematics research project, his work on Eilenberg–MacLane space, Homotopy sphere, Regular homotopy and Homotopy group is frequently linked to work in SPHERES, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Eilenberg–MacLane space study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Whitehead theorem and Cohomotopy group.

In his study, Mathematical analysis is inextricably linked to Euclidean distance, which falls within the broad field of Euclidean space. His study in the fields of Euler characteristic and Lemma under the domain of Combinatorics overlaps with other disciplines such as Dehn's lemma and Dehn function. His work deals with themes such as Affine space, Seven-dimensional space, Euclidean group and Flatness, which intersect with Manifold.
