I've left academia to explore new horizons, so the below list will not be updated beyond 2024 (which is when I expect the last papers to appear). I hope you can find what you are looking for. If not, drop me a line at j.vanberkum@uu.nl with REQUEST in the subject line (and be very patient, as I will only seldomly check that account...). Or, if there are any co-authors, try contacting them.

Good luck!
