Martyn graduated in mathematics and physics from the University of Warwick in 2004, before completing an MSc and PhD under Warwick’s interdisciplinary MOAC program. His final project focused on spectroscopy of DNA and modeling biopolymerization processes. He went on to a three year postdoc at the University of Reading, using atomic force microscopy and small angle X-ray scattering to analyze nano-structured biomaterials. He followed this with a further postdoctoral position at the University of Freiburg, developing TIRF microscopy of protein complexes.

Martyn joined MDPI in 2013 as an assistant editor, then Managing Editor, and served as Chief Production Editor from the end of 2013 until April 2017. He is current Publishing Services Manager and Director of
