Dmitry Khodyakov is a senior sociologist at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the RAND Pardee Graduate School. His research focuses on methods of expert elicitation and stakeholder engagement, intervention/program evaluation, Medicare Advantage, research partnership development and maintenance, community-based participatory research, and ethics of stakeholder-engaged research. His research has been funded by NIH, CMS, PCORI, and others.
As a methodologist, Khodyakov is an expert in qualitative and mixed-methods research, case study approaches, and methods of expert elicitation. He led a team of academic and community partners that developed measures for evaluating community participation in research. His evaluation experiences range from evaluating Medicare Advantage Value-Based Insurance Design Model, worksite wellness programs, and state health care worker influenza vaccination requirements to network-based approaches to intervention dissemination and the impact of community-academic partnered approaches on quality improvement intervention implementation and outcomes. He also developed the ExpertLens system and methodology (www.expertlens.org) for conducting large-scale online expert and stakeholder engagement panels that took the Delphi method into the XXI century.
Khodyakov is the recipient of major national and international awards, including the 2015 Community Campus Partnerships for Health Annual Award, the 2014 Team Science Award from the Association for Clinical and Translational Science, the 2014 Lawrence W. Green Paper of the Year Award from Health & Education Behavior, 2011 New Investigator Award from the National Institute of Mental Health, and the 2006 Award for Junior Sociologists from the International Sociological Association. He earned his Ph.D. in sociology from Rutgers University.
