Jeffrey Commons was an undergraduate at Brown University pursuing an Sc.B. in Mathematical Physics. Jeffrey was an active member of the Brown Juggling Club and constructed a hovercraft with fellow students as part of the Brown Building Society. Performing research in other labs at Brown and winning REUs at Cornell and Columbia, Jeffrey came to the Koski group with a strong set of skills in nanomaterials. He quickly became an expert using the two major TEM facilities at Brown University. Jeffrey Commons presented his original research at the Spring 2015 meeting of the New England Section of the American Physical Society and co-authored a paper in Nano Letters.

Jeffrey Commons completed a thesis entitled "Charge density waves in metal-intercalated topological insulator nanoribbons" and graduated on May 24th, 2015 from Brown University with a Sc.B. in Physics (Mathematical) with departmental honors and latin honors (magna cum laude).
