Tom you’re not alone. I consider Martine my mentor too 😀 I mean his ideas has changed my school life and personal life as well.
Also, I see Martin as “research translator”
Like whenever I read a poorly translated research online I always wish of having someone (like Martin) that can understand the concept and the claim then carefully select the most suitable words to be in the translated text.

Good luck for both of you guys 🙂
