**Dorota Maria Dabrowska** is a Polish statistician known for applying nonparametric statistics and semiparametric models to counting processes and survival analysis. Dabrowska's estimator, from her paper "Kaplan–Meier estimate on the plane" (*Annals of Statistics*, 1988) is a widely used tool for bivariate survival under random censoring.^{[1]}

Dabrowska earned a master's degree in mathematics from the University of Warsaw. She completed her Ph.D. in statistics in 1984 at the University of California, Berkeley.^{[2]} Her dissertation, supervised by Kjell Doksum, was *Rank Tests for Independence for Bivariate Censored Data*.^{[3]}
After completing her doctorate, she joined the faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she is a professor of biostatistics and statistics.^{[2]}

As well as being a researcher in statistics, Dabrowska is also one of the translators of an influential 1923 paper on randomized experiments by Jerzy Neyman, originally written in Polish.^{[4]}

Dabrowska is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.^{[5]}
