Martin was one of the original staff of the centre. As well as programming the site management system, he is web editor of the centre's journals and responsible for overall maintenance of the site. His content contributions include the Handbook guide "Using the Web to Teach Economics" and co-editing the Handbook for Economics Teaching Assistants.

His PhD was done at the Philosophy Department of the University of Bristol and involves applying decision theory to the choice of opinion, and also defending the descriptive role of decision theory as a framework for explaining and predicting behaviour.

Martin is co-author of the Internet Economist tutorial. He has created interactive tutorials on utility theory and the law of demand and the Prisoner's Dilemma, to illustrate how easy it is to make online material interactive.
