**Mia Hubert** is a Belgian mathematical statistician known for her research on topics in robust statistics including medoid-based clustering,^{[a]} regression depth,^{[b]} the medcouple for robustly measuring skewness,^{[c]} box plots for skewed data,^{[f]} and robust principal component analysis,^{[d]} and for her implementations of robust statistical algorithms in the R statistical software system, MATLAB,^{[e]} and S-PLUS.^{[a]} She is a professor in the statistics and data science section of the department of mathematics at KU Leuven.^{[1]}

Hubert earned a diploma in mathematics in 1992 from the University of Antwerp,^{[2]} and obtained her Ph.D. in 1997 at the same university. Her dissertation, *Robust Regression for Data Analysis*, was supervised by Peter Rousseeuw.^{[3]} She joined the KU Leuven faculty in 2001.^{[2]}

She was the original developer of the R package *cluster* along with Peter Rousseeuw and Anja Struyf.^{[4]}

Hubert became an Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute in 2013.^{[2]}^{[5]}
