    It gets very messy. You're much better using differently indented bullet format for lists within lists, and an ellipsis alone (followed by non-capitalised fragments) in the first example. Oct 20, 2020 at 18:39
  • Unrelated to the punctuation, it seems strange to describe a person alone as a "pairing". And does "Karla with two random research assistants" mean Karla with both assistants at the same time, or two separate pairings? Unclear.
