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, and direct-ink writing, plasma spraying. His research mainly focuses on equipment design and manufacturing, microstructure characterization and analysis, process in-situ visualization, numerical modeling (CFD and FEA), 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 Netherland before moving to Dublin. Dr. Yin has secured over EUR 3.5 million research funding from a number of funding bodies as PI or Co-PI, including the European Innovation Council (EIC), 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, and SFI Frontiers for the future project. He has authored or co-authored over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals. In 2021, he published a monograph entitled "Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing: from fundamentals to applications". Dr. Yin's research team has 2 postdoc, 7 PhD students, 3 visiting PhD students and 4 master students. He lectures three undergraduate modules: 4B6/3MEMS5 Manufacturing Systems/Operations, 3B3 Mechanics of Solids and 2MEMS11 Manufacturing Engineering Design.
