Martin was born in Lorraine, France.  Although he moved to sunny Oleron Island at seven, he kept reading too much science fiction (and a bit of science on the side), which luckily helped him acclimate to less welcoming latitudes later on. During his undergraduate studies at ESPCI Paris, Martin had the opportunity to discover medicinal chemistry at Johnson & Johnson in Belgium. He also spent time developing pericyclic reactions with Dr. Christophe Meyer and Pr. Janine Cossy in the course of his master's. After that, Martin crossed the Channel to join the then-budding Arseniyadis group at QMUL, where he has been working on DNA-based biohybrid catalysis as well as transition-metal catalysis.
