Martin obtained his PhD from London Business School and also holds a MSc (cum laude) and a BSc (with honours and cum laude) in psychology from the University of Amsterdam.

In one line of research Martin's research seeks to explain how negotiators can create and claim more value and how they can avoid impasses. In a second line of research Martin examines competitions for social status. Martin’s dissertation examined the systematic errors people make in their pursuit of higher status and asks specifically whether and why people overestimate their happiness after gaining status. Martin also examines how to make more science more reproducible by crowdsourcing distinct aspects of the scientific process.
