In broader terms, his interests lie in international economic law. Dr Martyniszyn was awarded grants by the Royal Irish Academy, the Oxford Noble Foundation and the NI Department of the Economy (the Global Challenge Research Fund). Moreover, in 2018 Dr Martyniszyn was awarded an Erasmus+ Jean Monnet grant to develop a comparative competition law module.
