The Kozak lab studies the genomic architecture underlying mating behavior to understand how new mate preferences evolve and lead to speciation. The lab uses a combination of behavioral experiments, field collection, and bioinformatic approaches. Current projects in the lab involve genetic basis for courtship divergence and preference in moths and epigenetic basis for paternally-induced changes in mating behavior in stickleback fish.
UMass-Dartmouth provides a PhD program in Integrative Biology and a MS program in Biology. Located on the south coast of Massachusetts, the University is less than 60 miles from Boston, Cape Cod, and Providence RI.
