He joined Worcester in 1993 as Director of the Undergraduate Modular Scheme, a new structure for the delivery of all undergraduate courses, which he designed and implemented. Since then, his work has progressively moved into the area of planning and resources. He was appointed Pro Vice Chancellor in 2005.
Educated at Worcester College, Oxford and the London School of Economics, Martin has taught in a number of UK Universities and Colleges, for the Open University, and at the University of Southern Maine, USA. His academic specialisms are in modern history and archaeology, focusing on military history and social history, especially housing. He has published on all these topics. More recently, at Worcester, he helped to design a new Archaeology and Heritage Studies course, on which he still teaches.
