Martin Krause obtained his doctorate from the oldest university in Germany, the University of Heidelberg, with a theoretical study of high redshift radio galaxies. After almost two more years in Heidelberg, he won a personal research fellowship from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, with which he went to the University of Cambridge, where he continued his work on radio galaxies and also joined the science preparations for the upcoming global telescope project "Square Kilometre Array". He then moved to the Garching/Munich science area in Germany and held mainly research positions with the Max-Planck-Society, the Excellence Cluster Universe and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University from which he obtained his Habilitation, a German award recognising teaching and research achievements, in 2012. His research in this period focussed on Active Galactic Nuclei and the interstellar medium. He also made significant contributions to Gamma ray studies of various celestial objects. In 2012, he held a position at the University of Geneva, where he investigated the interstellar medium and self-enrichment in massive star clusters. He left Munich in 2016 to take up a research position at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Australia to help building up a simulation group for studies of extragalactic jets. He joined the University of Hertfordshire late 2016 where he continues his simulation studies of the interstellar medium in various stellar systems, with and without jet activity.
