Dear Dr Koch

I have not had any contact with him since my graduate student days, but
according to what I could quickly find online, Patrick Harrigan
is still active (?) in researching specifically this site.
See https://umich.academia.edu/PatrickHarrigan
the latter with further links (not that the two website links are not
clickable because of some error but you can copy paste them individually).
Perhaps this is a useful contact.
