Causes and consequences
of genetic variation in behavior

Research: Causes and consequences of genetic variation in behavior

Our lab aims to address fundamental questions in evolutionary and behavioral biology by studying genetic variation in the ways that individuals choose, shape and learn about their environments–especially their social environments–and how these processes feed back to influence behavior and fitness.

Julia Saltz
I am interested in the genetics and evolution of behavior, and particularly in the ways that genotype and experiences in the environment come together to orchestrate behavior.
Lab Members
Our lab welcomes researchers at the graduate student, postdoctoral, undergraduate, and high school levels. And, some dogs!
