Martin has studied political science at the University of Konstanz and holds a doctorate from there (2002).

He was an assistant professor at the University of Hamburg (2004-2008) and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Northwestern University (2008-2011).
His research and teaching interests focus on the political conditions and consequences of globalization and regional integration.

Martin has also published on the interaction of domestic conditions and external influences in spill-over processes. His current research project is on backlashes against globalization and EU integration with a focus on inequality and redistribution.

His book on democracy and foreign economic liberalization in developing countries was published with VS publishers (Wiesbaden).
