The opportunities in green buildings, alternative energy, sustainability, health care, smart growth and spatial and building information technologies have never been greater. The topics that are central to the College of Design are currently at the forefront of the research agenda of the nation and the Institute. Georgia Tech can and should lead the way in linking design with cutting edge science and engineering research. To do this we need to strengthen the research support infrastructure within the college, build an incentive structure that supports research and develop stronger interdisciplinary ties within the college and, more importantly, to other units across campus.

In terms of my own research agenda I intend to focus on the development of urban models that can be used to understand and implement more sustainable urban development. This work will draw on my earlier work on land use modeling, impact assessment, GIS and natural hazards.

    I work to improve the effectiveness of environmental planners at building consensus among policymakers, publics and agencies.  I have examined citizen participation program design in water quality planning and in hazardous waste site remediation; mediation of disputes in environmental enforcement and in mobile home landland-tenant relations; negotiation of large-scale development permitting; and heuristic uses of environmental impact assessment methods.  I have also done work investigating the institutional positioning of urban planning programs in universities, and global cooperation among planning educators.

    Currently, I am assessing changes in urban planning worldwide, post Habitat II, seeking to contribute to the development of the United Nations New Urban Agenda proposed for adoption at the Habitat III conference in Quito in October 2016.  This follows on efforts to understand movement of planning ideas internationally published in Town Planning Review and the 2009 Global Report on Human Settlements, as well as participation in development of UN-Habitat's International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning.

    I am also active in research promoting the advancement of planning schools within academe, nationally in the US and internationally, seeking to understand how planning scholarship is transmitted internationally and the ways in which planning schools most effectively promote successful research and teaching among their staffs.

    <![CDATA[Marisabel Marratt]]> 28816 Marisabel Marratt is a doctoral student in the History and Theory concentration, under the direction of Professor Lars Spuybroek. Her research examines twentieth century history and philosophies of technology, and their implications for contemporary architectural history and theory, aesthetics and the evolving experience and conception of Architecture in professional practice. As point-of departure, her focus is the work of French philosopher of technology Gilbert Simondon (1924-1989), his conception of techno-aesthetics and in-formation, and its potential implications for contemporary conceptions of Architecture.

    Marisabel holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Architecture from Princeton University (1985, 1988), where she developed her design thesis under the direction of Professors Anthony Vidler and Alan Colquhoun. In her extensive professional experience, Marisabel has since been involved in many award-winning projects, encompassing Architecture, Interior Architecture and Production Design. Throughout, the emphasis has been to explore the content of experience in built form. The desire to “push the envelope”, has led to inventive approaches to space/form-making, exploring and implementing virtual and material technologies, color, movement and light.

    Research Interests: Philosophies of Technology and In-Formation; Science, Technology, Culture and Material Studies; Gilbert Simondon and Techno-aesthetics.

    <![CDATA[Sonit Bafna]]> 27369 Sonit Bafna works primarily in the area of architectural morphology, thinking of ways to explain how the built environment is shaped to organize behavior, perception, and social life. This work has progressed along two distinct lines of inquiry: statistical modeling using techniques like space syntax to study the association between spatial organization and human activity, and interpretive studies of architecture to address questions in architectural theory, aesthetics, and inferential criticism. He is currently at work on a book titled Imaginative Reasoning in the Shaping of Buildings. The book addresses a long-standing need for a general theoretical framework to explain how buildings are designed to function aesthetically. Dr. Bafna’s applied research has been supported by the General Services Administration, Steelcase, Ascension Health, and Kaiser Permanente. He serves on the board of Architecture and Planning B: Planning and Design, and the Journal of Space Syntax. He teaches design studios and courses on architectural theory, interpretation and design analysis, and research methods, and advises doctoral students in the areas of history and theory, and organizational and behavioral performance.

    An emerging area of research, international and multi-disciplinary, is developing a systematic general account of how the built environment functions—how buildings and settlements organize life and society spatially, how they create meaning, and how they are understood and formed—with a view to developing principles that can inform design but not reduce to it an exercise in satisficing or optimizing. Much of my research contributes to this work; a current aim is to expand this inquiry to explain visual form in architecture and the way in which aesthetics and other cognitive constraints shape our built environment. Some of this work can have direct implications for design and related professions, and has been supported by the General Services administration of the U.S. Government, Kaiser Permanente, Ascension Health, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Since 1993, she has been on the faculty in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. She was an Assistant Dean in charge of Space and Facilities Planning from Fall 2000 to January 2003. She served as Interim Dean of the College for six months in 2002. She was Associate Dean responsible for Research and Graduate Programs from 2003-2005. She served as the first Chair of the School of Computer Science from 2005-2012. She is a Fellow of the IEE and the ACM. She is the proud mom of two girls, Carmen (born in August of 1998) and Bethany (born in May of 2001), whose pictures never made it onto the web until Facebook.

    The theme of her research work is the development of wide-area (Internet) networking services. Wide-area services are utilized by applications that are distributed across multiple administrative domains (e.g., web, file sharing, multimedia distribution). Her focus is on services implemented both at the network layer, as part of network infrastructure, and at the application layer. The work in this area falls into three categories: (1) measurement and modeling, (2) development of new services, and (3) investigation of paradigms and platforms to support new services.
