Meet the Advisory Board

Our Advisory Board includes a regional planning researcher, a state transportation administrator, a pediatrician and clinical researcher, a local planning commissioner, and a nonprofit urban forestry leader.

Mike Carnathan is a researcher with the Atlanta Regional Commission. His extensive background in geographic information systems at ARC and local government make him a key asset to the Center's metropolitan planning issues.

Dr. Lily Immergluck is director of the Pediatric Clinical & Translational Research Unit at the Clinical Research Center at Morehouse School of Medicine, where she is an associate professor of Microbiology, Biochemistry, Immunology & Pediatrics. She also holds an adjunct faculty appointment at Emory University as associate professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, and is a Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Dr. Immergluck serves on the Executive Council for the Section on Infectious Diseases for the American Academy of Pediatrics. She also is involved with the local Georgia Chapter of the AAP, serving on the Infectious Diseases and School Health committees. She also serves as the co-facilitator for the Academy’s Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) program. Dr. Immergluck is involved in a number of the pediatric clinical translational and community engagement studies which are based at the Clinical Research Center. Currently, these studies have been funded by National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and American Academy of Pediatrics.

Tim Keane has been the Commissioner of Planning and Community Development for the City of Atlanta since July 2015. Prior to that, he was the Director of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability and Director of Planning and Neighborhoods for the City of Charleston, S.C., where he also served as Adjunct Faculty at the College of Charleston in the Department of Political Science. He was President of Keane & Co., an Urban Design and Planning Consulting Practice, in Charleston from 2004 - 2009. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Master of Architecture Degree, and was a Fellow in the School of Architecture at the University of Miami. 

Greg Levine is Co-Executive Director for Trees Atlanta, a position he has held since 1995. He also serves as the organization's Chief Program Officer. Founded in 1985, Trees Atlanta works to mitigate Atlanta’s tree loss, protect its forests, and increase its tree canopy.

Our Students

We routinely employ 10-20 undergraduate and graduate students each semester from a variety of colleges and schools across Georgia Tech, with the majority enrolled in one of the School of City and Regional Planning's graduate programs.

Our students work on a variety of projects and perform a multitude of tasks ranging from software development and spatial modeling to image processing, writing and editing journal articles, and serving as teaching assistants. These incredibly bright students are a vital part of the Center's ongoing success, and we are fortunate to have them spend their time at Georgia Tech working for us.
