Greg Martin grew up in Spring, Texas, and attended Stanford University as an undergraduate, receiving his bachelor’s degree in 1992. He completed his doctorate in analytic number theory at the University of Michigan in 1997 under the supervision of Trevor Wooley and Hugh Montgomery (and thus may be the only person to have two Salem Prize winners as advisors). After being a member of the Institute for Advanced Study and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, he took a faculty position at the University of British Columbia in 2001. In addition to playing ultimate and climbing rocks, he is also an avid singer, enjoying both collegiate a cappella and classical music.
