Her research interests focus on the late Ottoman and post-Ottoman Balkans: trade, travel, nationalism, gender, and public health. Davidova has published in European History Quarterly, CLIO Femmes, Genre et Histoire, Turcica, Balkanologie, Aspasia, and Journal of European Economic History, among others. She is the author of Balkan Transitions to Modernity and Nation-States. Through the Eyes of Three Generations of Merchants (1780s-1890s) (Brill, 2013) and the editor of Wealth in the Ottoman and post-Ottoman Balkans: A Socio-Economic History (I.B. Tauris, 2016).

Davidova’s new project, with the provisional title, Dutiful Nurses: War, Public Health, and Gender in Southeast Europe (1878-1939), focuses on the intertwining processes of state and nation building wherein public health played a key role.
