Martyn is currently working for Rolls-Royce plc in Repair Technology, where his role is to develop strategic repair technologies and to support current repair capability acquisition programmes. He is also reading for his PhD with the University of Sheffield which is part-time and industrially based. Prior to working for Rolls-Royce plc he graduated from the University of Sheffield with a first class honours degree in Aerospace Materials, which included a 5-month internship which was completed with Rolls-Royce. It was following this placement that he gained a place on the Rolls-Royce plc graduate scheme. During his time on the graduate scheme, he became a STEM ambassador, leading a project aimed at encouraging school children to go on to study STEM subjects by enthusing them about science and maths - one of his passions!
His other academic achievements include being awarded the Nesthill medal for work on physical metallurgy and the Armourers and Brasiers medal for greatest distinction shown by candidates reading for BEng (Level 3) or MEng (Level 4).
In his spare time he regularly officiates in grass roots football and also enjoys travelling.
