Dr. Davulcu has done research in data mining and information assurance. His previous works in data and services integration were published at prestigious ACM and IEEE conferences. Prior to joining ASU, US DOD's Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) funded his work in industry. The intelligent agent product that he developed, while at a software startup, was the recipient of a Long Island Software Achievement Award. Dr. Davulcu's research to improve situation-awareness, security and adaptability of service-oriented architectures has been funded by National Science Foundation (NSF) prestigious early CAREER award and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) MURI award. His research in Web mining is funded by US Department of Defense (DOD) Minerva Award. His DOD Minerva funded research focuses on development of new computational methods and models of political and social events as a powerful lens to construct and validate formal models of cultural transmission using real-world data extracted from online news sources and public discussion boards.

Dr. Davulcu has authored or co-authored over 50 papers at major Web, database and data mining conferences and journals. Dr. Davulcu is the co-founder and acting CEO of an e-commerce start-up. Dr. Davulcu serves as the Faculty Coordinator of SCIDSE Capstone and Internship Program.
