Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I was reading some of the reviews on culpa, and decided I need to clarify. Martin is very approachable, and yes, his explanations are lacking, but that doesn't mean he doesn't try. I think he takes on way too much, which works to alienate his students. He's extremely busy between his 4999 carbon sequestration projects and 999 administrative positions. It's hard to find him, since he has no stable office hours, and sometimes he "overlooks" student emails. (I've had to track him down on several occasions because he didn't see my emails.) But then again, that's basically how the Barnard environmental science department works. With the exception of Peter Bower, who replies his students within 5 minutes on his blackberry with 3 word answers, the envsci department consists of talented, intelligent, yet awkward and hardly personable faculty. Even though he was my adviser, things were still very technical, and talks about aspirations are pretty much stifled.

However, that being said, I do appreciate having been able to work with him during my undergraduate career. I have learned a lot and I think Martin really only wants to help.

If you are the type of person who needs moral support throughout this thesis process, Martin may not be your best bet. But he's someone that can refer you to renowned persons and he has some major connections at Lamont (...lol word).

Depends on your thesis.

Here is one case where you can judge by appearances. Martin looks like a teddy bear, and acts that way too. He's a brilliant hydrologist, but also a truly kind human being. He's sympathetic, understanding, occaisonally funny, a fair grader, and an excellent teacher who really cares whether or not you understand what he is saying.

This is a thesis class. 'Nuff said.
