Samuel Yacinthe, SROP Scholar

Samuel Yacinthe

Samuel Yacinthe was a participant in the Summer Opportunity Research Program (SROP) during the summer of 2013. Samuel was born in Haiti and grew up in south Florida. By participating in the SROP program, Samuel was able to gain a better understanding of his research interest, while also enabling him to further develop his graduate interests.

During the program, Samuel had the opportunity to conduct research on Ohio State’s EcoCAR2, which is an advanced vehicle technology competition sponsored by the Department of Energy and General Motors. As this three-year project transitioned into the refinement stage, Samuel’s research consisted of a simulation study to investigate the best approach for refining the system with respect to cost.

Along with acquiring many new technical skills in engineering research, Samuel gained great insight in how to succeed at the graduate level from experienced lab mates and the program’s professional development course. He grew accustomed to using public transportation to navigate Columbus and enjoyed biking around campus. Samuel advises future SROP participants to do extensive research on potential mentors, as he experienced that they are fundamental to one's growth and development as a scholar.
