Claudia Kraemer

Assistant Professor in Residence

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology


Professor Kraemer received her PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Calabria, Italy. She is the recipient of the 2001-2002 Faculty of the Year Award. In 2004, she was selected by her students for inclusion in “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers.”

After ten years of primary and applied research in the fields of animal behavior, cell biology, and embryology at the Zoological Station of Naples (Italy), and molecular biology at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution (Fla.), Professor Kraemer turned to teaching. Since 1998, she has taught at area colleges and universities, including the Stamford campus of the University of Connecticut. During that time, Professor Kraemer was a member of the Adjunct Faculty Advisory Board and represented adjuncts on the Union Executive Board.
