About Me

Wei Pin obtained his first degree in Mechatronic Engineering from the Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC), Malaysia in 2011. He was elected as the ‘PSDC Top Student in Diploma of Mechatronic Engineering 2011’ and ‘PSDC Overall Top student in Diploma of Engineering 2011’. Upon completing his diploma study, he was then awarded a scholarship to further his study in the UK. He finished his Master degree in Mechanical Engineering with a first class honour from the University of Hull in 2014. During his last year of master study, he was appointed as a researcher looking at developing a miniaturised aerosol particle analyser as a side project. Wei Pin is currently doing a PhD in the University of Leeds under the supervision of Professor Mojtaba Ghadiri and his thesis is titled ‘Attrition and Phase Changes during Agitated Filter Bed Drying’.
