Dr. Dannies is a historian of the Modern Middle East. Her current research examines the gender and family politics of military reform and conflict during the Late Ottoman Empire. Her in-progress book manuscript, Breadwinner Soldiers: Gender and the Making of the Modern Middle East in the Ottoman First World War is a study of the gender politics of welfare and sovereignty during World War I in the Ottoman Empire.

She is the author of "'A Pensioned Gentleman': Women's Agency and the Political Economy of Marriage in Istanbul during World War I" published in the Journal of the Ottoman and Turkish Studies (2019) and, with Stefan Hock, "A Prolonged Abrogation? The Capitulations, the 1917 Law of Family Rights and the Ottoman Quest for Sovereignty in World War I" published in the International Journal of Middle East Studies (2020).
