Dr. Shuo Yin

Assistant Professor (Mechanical, Manuf & Biomedical Eng)

Dr. Shuo Yin was appointed Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator within the Department of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Biomedical Engineering in January 2019. His expertise is mainly on additive manufacturing processes including cold spraying, selective laser melting, digital light processing, direct-ink writing, plasma spraying, and digital holography. His research mainly focuses on equipment design and manufacturing, microstructure characterization and analysis, process in-situ visualization, numerical modeling (CFD and FEA), and mechanical and biomedical properties. He received B.Eng and Ph.D from Dalian University of Technology. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Technology of Belfort-Montebiard in France and Wageningen University in the Netherlands before moving to Dublin. Dr. Yin has secured a number of research funding as PI or Co-PI from European Innovation Council (EIC), Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Irish Research Council (IRC), Enterprise Ireland (EI), IntertradeIreland, and industrial partners. He is the awardee of IRC Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, SFI Frontiers for the future project, Trinity Accelerated Advancement Award, and Trinity Research Boost Award. He has authored or co-authored over 160 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has served as the international referee of research proposals from the US, Canada, Singapore, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Currently, Dr. Yin's research team has 2 postdocs, 8 PhD students, 2 visiting PhD students and 4 master students. He is the coordinator of the Engineering with Management MAI class. He lectures three undergraduate modules: 4B6/3MEMS5 Manufacturing Systems/Operations, 3B3 Mechanics of Solids and 2MEMS11 Manufacturing Engineering Design.
