Projects per year
Dr Min Pan is a Reader in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She joined the department as a Lecturer in 2016. She was awarded her PhD from the University of Bath in June 2012 for research into fluid-borne noise control in digital hydraulic systems. After graduation, she continued at Bath as a postdoctoral researcher working on the efficient fluid power control project in the Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control. She worked as an Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Zhejiang University in 2014 and 2015. Dr Pan has been awarded two prestigious Fellowships from the Royal Academy of Engineering (2019-2021) and The Leverhulme Trust (2020-2022).
Min's main research interests include smart fluid power actuation and control, numerical modelling of dynamic systems, fluid-borne noise control and robotics. In 2014, she was awarded the prestigious IMechE Donald Julius Groen Prize for outstanding achievements in the areas of mechatronics, informatics and control. Her work has been featured on the Front Covers for a variety of world-leading journals including Advanced Science, Advanced Materials Technologies and Soft Matter. Min is collaborating with academics and industrial partners. Her research encompasses fundamental analysis, complex modelling, novel design and innovative applications. Her research has been widely funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society, the Leverhulme Trust and the Innovate UK.
