Jairus Calpatura

Jairus graduated with a BS Applied Physics degree in early 2021. His undergraduate thesis was on the thermoelectric effect and he studied how the amount of heat in a solid changes with applied electric fields and the intrinsic properties of the material. Jairus has since worked as a full-stack software engineer working on web, data engineering, and blockchain applications. He was active in the local music scene through the UP Music Circle and his band Granny Lee, and continues his involvement by helping to produce shows and events.

BS Thesis: 

Intrinsic property dependence of the thermoelectric figure of merit in solid state materials
