Kubinyi holds a PhD in Ethology, and degrees in Biology, Video communication, Biology teaching from the Eötvös Loránd University. She joined the Family Dog Research Project (Budapest, Hungary), the first and largest research group to study the behavioural and cognitive aspects of the dog-human relationship in 1994. Her research interests focus on the comparative analysis of dogs’ and wolves’ cognition, ethorobotics, personality, and behavioural genetics. Her current group explores the cognitive ageing of family dogs in a complex way, using an interdisciplinary approach with behavioural, neuroscientific and genetic testing methods. The results are expected to provide guidelines for a healthy lifestyle toward successful ageing, and to aid our understanding of the biological background human cognitive ageing. They have also established a Dog Brain and Tissue bank.
