Dr. Shuo Yin

Assistant Professor (Mechanical, Manuf & Biomedical Eng)

Dr. Shuo Yin is an Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator in the Department of Mechanical, Manufacturing, and Biomedical Engineering since 2019. Specializing in additive manufacturing processes such as cold spraying, selective laser melting, digital light processing, direct-ink writing, plasma spraying, and digital holography, Dr. Yin's research encompasses equipment design and manufacturing, microstructure characterization, process in-situ visualization, numerical modeling (CFD and FEA), and mechanical and biomedical properties.Dr. Yin holds a B.Eng and a Ph.D from Dalian University of Technology. Following this, he conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Technology of Belfort-Montebiard in France and Wageningen University in the Netherlands before joining Trinity College Dublin. His track record includes securing research funding as a PI or Co-PI from European Innovation Council (EIC), Marie Curie Actions (MSCA), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Irish Research Council (IRC), Enterprise Ireland (EI), IntertradeIreland, and industrial partners. Recognized for his contributions, Dr. Yin has received awards such as the IRC Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (GOIPD), SFI Frontiers for the Future Project, Trinity Accelerated Advancement Award, and Trinity Research Boost Award. Dr. Yin has published over 170 peer-reviewed papers. He has served as an international referee for research proposals from institutions such as the ERC Advanced Grant, US, Canada, Singapore, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Additionally, he holds the position of editorial board member for the Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing, Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering, and serves as the co-chair of the 2023 Cold Spray Club meeting and session chair of the 2023 International Conference on Welding and Joining. Under his mentorship, 1 postdoc, 2 Ph.D. students, 5 visiting Ph.D, and 14 master students have completed their research in Trinity. Currently, Dr. Yin leads a dynamic research team comprising 1 MSCA research fellow, 1 postdoc, 7 PhD students, 2 visiting PhD students, and 3 master students. Beyond research, he is actively involved as the college tutor and coordinator of the Engineering with Management MAI class, while also delivering lectures for three undergraduate modules: 4B6/3MEMS5 Manufacturing Systems/Operations, 3B3 Mechanics of Solids, and 2MEMS11 Manufacturing Engineering Design.
