The Map is by no means complete, and hopefully, it never will be.

Ecosystems are alive and ever-changing.

I am constantly updating the Map by adding new organizations, more information about existing entries, and introducing design elements to make it easier to navigate & interact with.

If you are a representative of one of the organizations on the map and would like to discuss your entry, shoot me an e-mail at

I would especially like to talk to students at the universities I’ve mentioned, to learn about what else your institutions have to offer.
