Martin Escardo joined University of Birmingham in September 2000. His first degree was from the Universidade Federal Do Rio Grande Sul where he also obtained an MSc degree by research. During his undergraduate and MSc studies, he worked in industry. He then went to Imperial College of the University of London in October 1993 for his PhD under the supervision of Mike.B.Smyth. After completing this in April 1997, he was a postdoc for one year at Imperial, a lecturer at the University of Edingburgh for two years, and then at the University of St Andrews for one year before joining the University of Birmingham.
