Dan Siconolfi is a behavioral scientist at the RAND Corporation. His work has focused on health disparities among sexual minority men and persons living with HIV, with attention to mental health, substance use, and health care. His research has examined the developmental periods of adolescence and emerging adulthood, as well as older adulthood, and has incorporated individual, interpersonal, and structural factors that underlie health disparities. His collaborations at RAND include the evaluation of a task-shifting intervention in community settings, disparities in home and community-based services for Medicaid beneficiaries, and advance care planning. His methodological skills and interests include both quantitative skills (e.g., survey design, cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis, structural equation modeling) and qualitative skills (e.g., interview guide development, individual and group data collection, thematic analysis). Prior to joining RAND, he completed an NIMH-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. Siconolfi received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University.
