Welcome to Kozak Lab at UMass Dartmouth!
Evolutionary genomics of speciation and mate choice
How do new species form?
We study what causes barriers to mating to evolve and the stability of these barriers as environments change.
Our research seeks to identify the genetic and environmental basis of mating traits including signals, preferences, and timing.
