I received my PhD in ethology at Eötvös University Budapest and I am currently Res. Assoc. Prof. at the Comparative Ethology Research Group of Hungarian Academy of Sciences led by Prof. Ádám Miklósi. My field of study is the ethological analysis of dog-human relationship and the role of domestication in dogs' socio-cognitive capacities. In the Family Dog Project research group I have conducted comparative investigations on dog–wolf socio-cognitive abilities, dog–human communication and dogs’ human directed aggression. Currently my major research interest is the application of dogs’ interspecific social behaviors as a model to design more believably “social” social robots.
