After studying mathematics and computer science at TU Dortmund University, Texas A&M International University, and Freie Universität Berlin, Martin received his Dr. rer. nat. in Mathematics from Freie Universität Berlin, Germany in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Polthier and Prof. Levin. He was a postdoc at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University and at the interdisciplinary Theoretical and Mathematical Sciences Program (iTHEMS) at RIKEN. Currently, he holds a Walter-Benjamin postdoctoral fellowship by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Martin’s research interests are set between Computer Science and Mathematics. He is mainly concerned about all issues related to point sets, which includes both low- and high-dimensional data as well as their processing and visualizations. Furthermore, his interests also revolve around different connections between mathematics and arts, which he follows up on as associate editor of the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts.
