 Catherine Huber is professor at the university of Paris Descartes, a member of the team 8145 of the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS), and a member of the unit U1181 of the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), specialized in Biostatistics,​ and she was during several years the head of the Biostatistics Research laboratory at this same university. She was an expert at the NSF in 2005 and 2007. She is a member of ISI and is associate editor of several journals, among which Lifetime Data Analysis and Journal Afrika Statistika, and is editor of several books in probability and statistics series by Birkhauser and Springer. Apart from her universitary cursus, she has done research for L'​Oreal company, studying the hair lifetime and the agents that could impact it at the individual level. Though the main activity of this company is supposed to be cosmetology it  frequently keeps close to medicine (which drives some critics to the company), for example when they study the androgenetic alopecy. Several patents were obtained as results of this work.  ​ Catherine Huber is professor at the university of Paris Descartes, a member of the team 8145 of the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS), and a member of the unit U1181 of the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), specialized in Biostatistics,​ and she was during several years the head of the Biostatistics Research laboratory at this same university.
