The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Globalization

He has included themes like Mathematical economics and PPML in his Bilateral trade study. His Foreign direct investment research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Production, Investment and Externality.

Many of his research projects under International trade are closely connected to European integration with European integration, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Keith Head interconnects Economic integration and Public policy in the investigation of issues within Trade barrier.
