Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Social psychology

Keith Davids focuses on Cognitive psychology, Social psychology, Task, Perception and Action. His study on Affordance is often connected to Dreyfus model of skill acquisition and Attunement as part of broader study in Cognitive psychology. Keith Davids combines subjects such as Sedentary lifestyle and Applied psychology with his study of Affordance.

His Social psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cognition, Team sport and Ecological dynamics. His research in Task intersects with topics in Communication, Perspective, Movement, Motor learning and Artificial intelligence. Keith Davids has researched Perception in several fields, including Athletes and Association.

His most cited work include:

  • Movement systems as dynamical systems: The functional role of variability and its implications for sports medicine (499 citations)
  • Visual perception and action in sport (469 citations)
  • The ecological dynamics of decision making in sport (444 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Perception, Task, Social psychology and Action. In his study, Ecological dynamics is inextricably linked to Perspective, which falls within the broad field of Cognitive psychology. Keith Davids focuses mostly in the field of Perception, narrowing it down to topics relating to Communication and, in certain cases, Kinematics.

His study looks at the relationship between Task and topics such as Artificial intelligence, which overlap with Climbing. Many of his studies on Social psychology apply to Dynamics as well. His Action research integrates issues from Cognitive science and Process.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (21.61%)
  • Perception (18.39%)
  • Task (16.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecological dynamics (11.39%)
  • Athletes (7.15%)
  • Affordance (8.76%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Ecological dynamics, Athletes, Affordance, Task and Coaching. His Ecological dynamics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Engineering ethics, Perspective, Environmental resource management, Ecological psychology and Process. His Perspective research incorporates elements of Competition, Cognitive psychology, Perception and Action.

He mostly deals with Visual search in his studies of Cognitive psychology. The concepts of his Athletes study are interwoven with issues in Pedagogy and Identification. His research on Task also deals with topics like

  • Jumping and related Gait,
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation, which have a strong connection to Kinematics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • What Performance Analysts Need to Know About Research Trends in Association Football (2012-2016): A Systematic Review (91 citations)
  • The empowering variability of affordances of nature: Why do exercisers feel better after performing the same exercise in natural environments than in indoor environments? (64 citations)
  • How manipulating task constraints in small-sided and conditioned games shapes emergence of individual and collective tactical behaviours in football: A systematic review: (31 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Social science

His main research concerns Dreyfus model of skill acquisition, Task, Perception, Athletes and Coaching. His Task study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Applied psychology, Complementarity, Talent development, Marketing and Key. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive psychology, Affordance, Process, Perspective and Curriculum studies in addition to Perception.

His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Cognition and Cognitive psychology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Unit of analysis, Process management and Action. The Coaching study combines topics in areas such as Qualitative research, Knowledge management and Conceptualization.
