Martin holds a master’s degree in Economics from the University of Oslo, and a bachelor’s degree from NTNU in Trondheim. During his years at NTNU, he was an exchange student at Erasmus Universiteit in Rotterdam. His academic background is rooted in environmental and resource economics, with a methodical specialization in econometrics and mathematics. In his master thesis, Martin conducted an empirical analysis of non-market valuation surveys of environmental goods, analysing the development of environmental preferences in the Norwegian population over a five-year period. His education has thus provided him with an understanding of economic analyses at the intersection between economic activity and nature.
In Vista Analyse, Martin has worked on a wide range of projects within thematic areas ranging from inequality mitigation in developing countries to transport services for the elderly in Norwegian municipalities. In these projects, he has worked with quantitative analyses, conducting surveys and interviews, as well as calibrating methods to contemporary research literature.
