Catherine Sulem received her Doctorat d'Etat from the Université de Paris-Nord in 1983 and held a CNRS position at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris before coming to the University of Toronto in 1990 as an Associate Professor. She was promoted to Professor in 1994.
In 1998, she was awarded the Kriegel-Nelson prize by the Canadian Mathematical Society.
She works on partial differential equations arising in the description of wave propagation in optics, fluids and plasmas. She is a co- author (with Pierre-Louis Sulem) of the monograph on ``Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation : Self-Focusing Instability and Wave Collapse'' (1999).
