    Hi Jonathan,
    Thanks so much for creating this list! The links to my website and also Tomas Dominguez-Iino don’t work. I think adding www. should fix it (same for Tomas’ website as well).
    Best regards,

    Hi Jonathan,
    I believe Ezequiel Garcia-Lembergman (, from UC Berkeley, would also fit this list as a trade JMC.

    All the best!
