Aram Dobalian is the director of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Emergency Management Evaluation Center (VEMEC) at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VAGLAHS).

Dobalian is also an associate adjunct professor of health services at the Jonathan and Karin Fielding School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Dobalian received his PhD in health services from the UCLA School of Public Health with an academic cognate in social psychology, and his JD from Whittier Law School where he was editor-in-chief of the Whittier Law Review. He received his MPH in health services from UCLA and his BS in physics from Vanderbilt University. From 2001 to 2004, Dobalian was an assistant professor in the Department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy at the University of Florida. His research focuses on emergency management/public health emergency preparedness and response, including the impact of bioterrorism, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other natural and human-caused emergencies and disasters. His research also spans nursing, long-term care, nursing home malpractice, advance care planning, and the role of pain in the use of health services. In 2009 to 2010, Dobalian led the development of the first national VA Comprehensive Emergency Management Program Evaluation and Research agenda. The goals of this agenda were to provide a basis for fostering the conduct of VA-based emergency management research, to promote new discoveries and improve care delivery during and after emergencies, and to position VA as a national leader in emergency management research.
