Dr Martin's is a young scholar and expert on international economic law, with a particular interest for trade and investment policy and law. His main interests include foreign investment regulatory instability, free trade negotiations and WTO policymaking, as well as the regulatory issues related to financial liberalisation, financial services liberalisation and financial markets opening. Recently, he has managed various research projects focusing for instance on the contribution of the TPP agreements towards developing financial services as foreign investments, on the changing role of the IMF towards cross border capital flows and the preservation of international financial stability, or on the ability of the international trade community to adapt to new technology-based financial services (the so-called FinTechs). He has also written a number of academic publications in well-regarded international law and international trade law journals and has contributed to various edited books (Cambridge; Oxford).
In addition to academia, Dr Martin is more generally developing an expertise on the international and Asia-Pacific policy, as well as on the legal and political aspects of globalisation. He founded, chairs and coordinates the research and analysis work of the 'Asia-Pacific Circle', follows and comments on the various developments of investment and trade policy worldwide - including for instance the currently famous TPP, TTIP, RCEP or CETA-like negotiations - and engages in discussions with entrepreneurs and business circles in Hong Kong.
