Dr. Xiaomi Hu's research interest lies in three areas of statistics: restricted statistical inferences, quality control and statistical computing. Bound restriction and order restriction are most commonly encountered constraints when making inferences. Dr. Hu worked on several problems on the properties of statistical procedures under such restrictions. He also studied several problems related to reliability and stochastical processes. Recently he became interested in using new computing tools such as Java applets, VBA for statistical computing.
