Jeffrey Cummings is an Assistant Research Scientist at Johns Hopkins University. He earned his PhD at Indiana University – Bloomington in 2011, with work on the analysis of lithium evolution in the galaxy based on young star clusters. From 2011 to 2013 he worked at the Universidad de Concepcion in Chile analyzing new photometric techniques to detect and study multiple populations in globular star clusters. Since 2013, he has been photometrically and spectroscopically analyzing white dwarfs in star clusters. His focus is both on discovering new white dwarfs and improving the analysis techniques to create the initial-final mass relation.
