Claudia Schröder-Adams is a Canadian paleontologist specialising in micropaleontology (the study of microscopic fossils), especially in using foraminifera (single-celled organisms with internal or external shells) to determine the environmental conditions of deep water basins of Mesozoic Western and Arctic Canada.
Claudia started studying modern marine environments, and then moved back in time with her research. She is currently a professor of Earth Sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and has been there since 1992. During her tenure she has traveled with her students across Canada, and to Antarctica, Australia, Germany, and New Zealand.
She has helped describe at least two dinosaurs, and helped discover the North American paratype of Quipalong henanensis, the first ornithomimid discovered across two continents.
