Martin's professional career has spanned the worlds of advanced academical research and of investment banking derivative pricing. Both of these represented in his co-authorship of the best-selling Financial Calculus, a text book on the mathematics of derivatives.
He currently works at Nomura International in London where he is responsible for the mathematical modelling and pricing of all derivative products across the fixed-income, credit and foreign exchange markets.
Away from work, he has an interest in UK elections. He has applied scientific techniques to the electoral geography of Britain to predict the future general election result, whenever it may occur. Regularly updated pages containing overall predictions and seat-by-seat predictions are available in this site.
The site also contains public publications, links to other people's web sites, and some miscellaneous trivia.
