Kevin Martyn is Assistant Instructor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of South Florida. Previously, he was a visiting faculty member at the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and a Senior Associate with the Indiana University Public Policy Institute (2019-2022). His work examines how economic, environmental, and social inequities tend to manifest as spatial phenomena, particularly in cities. In recent years, this has included extensive community-engaged research projects conducted in both Indiana and Florida. At USF, he teaches courses in urban sustainability, coastal resiliency, civic engagement, GIS, and more.

Dr. Martyn holds a PhD in Geography (2020), an MS in Environmental Science and Policy (2016), and graduate certificates in both Geographic Information Systems (2019) and Environmental Policy and Management (2019) – all from the University of South Florida. He previously completed his undergraduate studies at American University in Washington, D.C. In his free time, he enjoys running, swimming, biking, hiking, and/or just plain old traveling to places where he can read a good book and imagine the many ways in which a better world is possible.
