Carolyn Phillips, a director in the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI), has become a research affiliate with the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development (CQGRD).
As a research affiliate at CQGRD, she will be involved in all aspects of CQGRD’s research portfolio, programs, outreach, and education. Phillips will continue her work at CIDI, formerly AMAC Accessibility.
The Centers' collaboration brings together CIDI’s research on issues of accessibility and services for individuals with disabilities, and CQGRD’s research on the development of healthy and equitable places to live.
Both Centers are affiliated with the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
Catherine Ross, director of CQGRD, said “the Center is extremely pleased to add Carolyn P. Phillips, a nationally recognized consultant in the field of assistive technology and disabilities, to the CQGRD team. She speaks frequently on topics that include assistive technology, advocacy, self-determination and living with a learning disability.”
Phillips also serves as Director of Tools for Life, the Georgia Assistive Technology Act Program; the Pass It On Center; and the National Assistive Technology Reuse Technical Assistance and Coordination Center.
Of her new affiliation, Phillips said, “I am looking forward to extending my work partnerships through my affiliation with the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development. This affiliation emanates from ongoing and continuing research and teaching we are undertaking.”
