Danilo Marcondes Filho
Professor Danilo has academic experience in Industrial Statistics, focusing on Statistical process control (SPC). He works at developing theoretical aproaches based on statistical techniques in a SPC context with processes that generate data with different characteristics, such as: overdispersed/zero-inflated data; high dimension multivariate data; multivariate time series data.
