HERNANDO "JETHRO" SIY SALAPARE III (born March 4, 1984, Tigaon, Camarines Sur) is an instructor of Physics [1] at the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines. He is currently the Acting College Secretary of the College of Science, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City. Salapare obtained his BS Applied Physics and MS Physics degrees from the University of the Philippines in 2007 and 2010, respectively. He was awarded the 2008 Leticia Shahani Award for Best Undergraduate Thesis in Applied Physics and the 2010 Most Outstanding Master of Science Graduate of the College of Science, University of the Philippines Diliman. He is currently taking his Doctor of Philosophy in Physics also at the College of Science, the University of the Philippines. Salapare was recently elected as a regular member of the National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP). Among the principal mandates of NRCP is the provision of assistance for the development of the research capabilities of Filipino scientists. It also acts as an advisory body in select priority sectors to the national government on problems and issues affecting the country [2]. Salapare is also a regular member of the Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas (Physics Society of the Philippines).
