Claudia Maria Neuhauser is a mathematical biologist[1] whose research concerns spatial ecology. She is the former vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Minnesota Rochester and directs the Institute of Informatics at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.[2] At the University of Minnesota, she is also a Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor, and Morse-Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor.[3]

As a student, Neuhauser studied mathematics and physics.[1] She graduated from Heidelberg University in 1988,[3] and earned a Ph.D. in mathematics from Cornell University in 1990 with a dissertation on ergodic theory supervised by Rick Durrett.[4] She became a mathematics professor at the University of Minnesota in 1996, and moved to the Rochester campus of the same university in 2008 before returning to the Twin Cities campus in 2013. She has also held faculty positions at the University of Southern California, University of Wisconsin–Madison, and University of California, Davis[3]

Neuhauser is the author of a mathematics textbook aimed at biology students, Calculus for Biology and Medicine (Pearson, 3rd ed., 2010).[1]

In 2011, Neuhauser was elected as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.[5] In 2012, she became one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society.[6]
