Martin completed his MPA at the School of Public and International Affairs, studying economics and public policy.

Prior to Princeton, Martin worked for nearly four years at the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), a spin-off of the UK Cabinet Office that applies behavioral science and evaluation to public policy challenges. In London, he worked as a lead researcher on a wide variety of projects with partners and government departments in the UK and abroad. In the US, he designed and analyzed low-cost evaluations in six cities through the What Works Cities initiative.

Martin has also worked as a research analyst at Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), a research and policy nonprofit that discovers and promotes effective solutions to global poverty problems.

After graduating, Martin hopes to continue to use data, evidence, and behavioral science to improve public policies and services.
