Claudia Neuhauser

Associate Vice President for Research, University of Minnesota

Claudia Neuhauser, PhD, is the director of Research Computing in the Office of the Vice President for Research, overseeing the University of Minnesota Informatics Institute (UMII), the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI), and U Spatial.

Her research is at the interface of mathematics and biology, and has ranged from studying the effect of competition on the spatial structure of competitors to the effect of symbionts on the spatial distribution of their hosts or the effect of virotherapy on clusters of cancer cells. Currently, her research is primarily in the area of bioinformatics and computational biology where she is developing statistical tools ranging from detecting genomic signatures of cancer and other complex diseases in next-generation sequencing data to analyzing flow cytometry data.

In her role as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Development at UMR, she was responsible for developing and overseeing academic and student development programs that promote a learner-centered, technology-enhanced, and concept-based learning environment in which ongoing assessment guides and monitors student learning and is the basis for data-driven research on learning.
