Trained as a condensed matter physicist, he carries out interdisciplinary research focused on the electrical, thermal and mechanical properties of nano-scale systems that range from semiconductor devices to nanoparticles organized on biological molecules. Martin has published over one hundred peer-reviewed articles and holds nine patents. He has been a visiting Professor at the University Pierre and Marie Curie, L'Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, and has chaired a number of premier international physics conferences. In 1998 he was elected as a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and in 2007 was awarded a Doctor of Science degree by the University of Nottingham. At Dartmouth, Martin has served as the Associate Dean of the Faculty for the Sciences and is currently the Chair of the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P), which is a national consortium of more than twenty academic, non-profit and government institutions.
