Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Martin is a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow in the School of Physics at the University of Bristol where he conducts a research programme that seeks to develop more responsive, higher-resolution and lower-cost platforms for detecting and preventing the unauthorised movement of radioactive materials, as well as the radiological monitoring networks in which they reside. Dr Martin is an international expert in nuclear materials, radiation detection, accident scenarios and radiological release incidents arising from nuclear facilities. 

Since his PhD at the University of Bristol, Dr Martin has established an extensive collaborative network of supporters in the UK (including; UK Atomic Weapons Establishment, Sellafield, Gunnebo, Hamamatsu Photonics and the UK Atomic Energy Authority) and worldwide; both academic and industrial, including partners in Japan (Fukushima), USA, France, Canada, Ukraine (Chernobyl) and Portugal.
