IE-CoR is published - and Matthew Scarborough was a great part of it

The Indo-European Cognate Relations Database is published after several years of hard work. Postdoc Matthew Scarborough was a part of the process.

The database is the backbone of the phylogenetic study "Language trees with sampled ancestors support a hybrid model for the origin of Indo-European languages" by Heggarty et al., which you can find here.

Matthew was interviewed about his role in the compilation and in the study for HumNyt. You can see more about that here [in Danish].
