Research Areas

Currently, Cozza remains active in community outreach by volunteering at UM's Gifford Arboretum, and with TREEmendous Miami, a group that does tree plantings in various public spaces in the area. He remains broadly interested in tropical biology, educational horticulture, sex expression and symbioses in plants, and, especially, finding new and effective ways to teach biology to students of all ages and backgrounds. He also looks forward to working with students and colleagues at FIU and in the community towards sustainable solutions for climate change, biodiversity conservation and human advancement.
