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.
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. Her dissertation, supervised by Kjell Doksum, was Rank Tests for Independence for Bivariate Censored Data. After completing her doctorate, she joined the faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she is a professor of biostatistics and statistics.
