Vice President, Energy & Sustainability
Jeremy M. Martin is Vice President, Energy & Sustainability at the Institute of the Americas, an inter-American public policy think-tank located at the University of California San Diego. The Institute of the Americas Energy Program works to foster a deeper understanding of the most critical energy issues facing the Western Hemisphere.
Martin spends his time delving into the geopolitics of energy and closely following energy industry trends and policy issues across the Americas, and is a frequent commentator and writer on Latin American and energy issues. Martin has testified before the U.S. Congress on energy issues in Latin America, teaches a graduate seminar in Latin American Energy Politics at the University of San Diego, and serves as Curator of the energy section of the US-Mexico Network, an online forum hosted by the University of Southern California.
Thanks to his upbringing, he is a diehard Red Sox fan, Civil War buff, and news junkie. Martin graduated with honors in history from The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina and a masters in international affairs/international development from American University in Washington. He has yet to achieve his lifelong dream of being a stand-up comic.
