He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Faculty for a number of their education-based courses. He regularly teaches on a number of other courses.

Mr Martin has been commissioned in the Defence Medical Services for more than twenty years and has operational experience. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Surgery (Burns) for the Academic Department of Military Surgery and Trauma at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine in 2016. His current research interest is focused on burn care in austere environments but, with a keen interest in fire scene investigation and the forensic analysis of burn wounds and patterns. He also pursues a number of additional research interests.
