Wei Pin Goh

Research Fellow
SCaPE 4.01
Engineering and Physical Sciences
Mechanical Engineering; Chemical and Process Engineering


Wei Pin obtained his first degree in Mechatronic Engineering from the Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC), Malaysia in 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. Following that, Wei Pin further pursued his doctorate research at the University of Leeds with his thesis titled "Attrition and Phase Changes during Agitated Filter Bed Drying". He was also involved in ADDoPT project (Advanced Digital Design of Pharmaceutical Therapeutics), looking at milling of pharmaceutical materials. He is now a research fellow, working on a EPSRC funded project called Friction: The Tribology Enigma.
