Dr Martin Ho

Postdoctoral Researcher, CSTI

Martin Ho is postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Science, Technology & Innovation Policy, where he invents new ways to study the evolution of technologies.

Since joining the Institute for Manufacturing in 2020, Martin has worked at the intersection of scientometrics, network science, systems engineering, innovation economics, machine learning, generative AI, biotechnology, and political economy. His vision is the widespread usage of data-driven evidence regimes to empower innovation policy’s role in shaping emerging technologies. Additionally, he contributes to models that mathematically describe innovation trajectories. More details on his current projects are available on his departmental webpage.

Martin’s work in industrial innovation policy is deeply integrated with technology forecasting and innovation policy evidence. He has advised UK’s Government Office for Science, BEIS/DSIT/DBT, and collaborated with IfM Engage on projects involving technology foresight, strategic roadmapping, mission-oriented innovation (DARPA model), and R&D funding from 2019 to 2024, both nationally and internationally.

He holds a BSc in Biochemistry and Biotechnology from Imperial College London and an MPhil in Technology Policy and a PhD in Engineering and Innovation Policy, both from the University of Cambridge.

Martin is an Academic Fellow at the Center for Science and Policy, an Associate at the Royal College of Science, and a member at Clare Hall and Sidney Sussex College.
