- Fellowship in 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Martin received his Bachelor degree, majoring in Mathematics, from Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006. After finishing his PhD program at Stanford, he worked at University of British Columbia for two years as a postdoctoral fellow. After that, he worked at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Croucher postdoctoral fellow. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
His research interest is in differential geometry, specializing on geometric variational problems and their applications in theoretical physics including relativity. Most of his work is focusing on minimal surfaces, which model soap films appearing in nature.
