In this email, Barrientos makes Gray aware
that it is his intent to blend the research
The institution attests that Minion did not work for Barrientos as an assistant. The institution also insists that Minion made no arrangements for Gray and Barrientos to travel to Boca Raton, Florida for the 2014 conference. To the contrary, Barrientos told Gray that Minion was his new research assistant. Barrientos also told Gray that Minion's purpose was to assist the pair and set travel arrangements. For this reason, Minion was to be included in Barrientos's paper.
