His research interests include performance characterisation of orthopaedic implants and materials via non-invasive optical, acoustic and x-ray based experimental methods, and using statistical methods to predict the behaviour of implants in the face of uncertainty due to surgical approach and patient variability.

Martin graduated with a degree in Materials Science from the University of Manchester in 1991, and spent time in industry researching carbon fibre composite materials. He was awarded his PhD in 1995 by the University of Southampton for research into improving the corrosion resistance of titanium medical devices. He was appointed a senior research fellow in 1999, became a lecturer in 2003, and a Reader in 2006.
