who also contributed the ESPRESSO test data for ShengBTE and helped enhance the support for second-order force constants generated with ESPRESSO.

Mr. Guangzhao Qin contributed a patch to provide more detailed output from ShengBTE and estimate the effect of boundary scattering.

Dr. Youdi Kuang implemented time reversal symmetry.
