Dr. Diana Reiss is a cognitive psychologist, marine mammal scientist and professor in the Department of Psychology at Hunter College, CUNY, and in the Animal Behavior & Comparative Psychology Doctoral program at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Her research focuses on dolphin cognition, communication, comparative animal cognition and the evolution of intelligence. She pioneered the use of underwater keyboards with dolphins to investigate their cognitive and communicative abilities. She and her colleagues demonstrated that bottlenose dolphins and Asian elephants possess the rare ability for mirror self-recognition previously thought to be restricted to humans and great apes. Her advocacy work has focused on the protection of dolphins from the tuna-fishing industry and efforts to bring an end to the killing of dolphins in Japan that were exposed in the Oscar-winning film “The Cove.” Her book, “The Dolphin in the Mirror,” was released in Fall 2011.
