Martin is investigating novel metal fabrication processes for minimum energy and maximum yield as part of his PhD in the WellMet2050 project. He graduated from Cambridge University with an MEng in Engineering in 2008, with a year spent on exchange at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

While at Cambridge, Martin founded Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER), recruiting a team of students, academic supervisors and sponsors to design and build a solar car, ‘Affinity’, which was toured from Land’s End to John O’Groats in June 2008. He was a member of CUER’s advisory board in 08/09, when the team built a second car to compete in the World Solar Challenge in Australia.

After graduating, Martin worked as an engineer in the Mechanical Systems group at Cambridge technology consultancy Sagentia, where he was responsible for design of several products in the industrial and medical sectors.
