Marina Mondin is Full Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at California State University, Los Angeles. Her current interests are in the area of signal and image processing for communications and physics, modulation and coding, simulation of communication systems, and quantum communication.  She holds five patents.

She is currently the Perincipal Invesigator for the NATO grant SPS G5263 "Analysis, design and implementation of an end-to-end 400 km QKD link", involving California State University, Politecnico di Torino (Italy), Ben Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) and National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (Pakistan).

She is also the PI of the CalStateLA LIGO group, and the scientific coordinator of the Erasmus+ exchange program between CalStateLA and Politecnico di Torino (Italy).

She has been Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-I from 2011 to 2014. She has been acting as a reviewer for several international scientific IEEE and IEE journals, she has been Guest Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (2009) and the International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (2009 and 2010), and she has been member of the technical-scientific committees of various international conferences, such as ICC 2017, SNeS 2012, ICT 2009 and 2010, ISWCS 2010, Spacomm 2009, 2010 and 2011, Mobilight 2010, ICT 2009, Tridentcom 2008, Globecom 2006, Eusipco 2006, WHAPS 2005, WPMC 2004.

She has organized an invited session on QKD at the conferences ISABEL 2010 and ISABEL 2011.

She has been in the 2012 TCAS committee for the selection of the Darlington and Guillemin-Cauer Best Paper Awards, and an evaluator for the Christian Doppler Research Association.

She has been principal Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of Politecnico di Torino University, Italy, from the Fall of 1989 to the Spring of 2016. She has been principal investigator for Politecnico di Torino in several national PRIN projects, funded by the Italian Ministry of Research and University, concerning the integration of satellites and high altitude platforms for broadband data transmission, she has been the National Coordinator of the PRIN 2007 project “Feasibility study of a Earth-satellite quantum optical communication channel”, and Co-PI for the NATO Collaborative Linkage Grant “Quantum photonics for secure quantum communication”, involving INRIM, Politecnico di Torino, Lomonosov Moscow State Univ. and California State Univ., Los Angeles.

From 2013 to 2015 she has been the Principal Investigator (PI) of the NATO Science for Peace and Security grant “Secure Communication Using Quantum Information Systems”, project number SfP- 984397, involving INRIM (Istituto di Ricerca Metrologica, Torino), Politecnico di Torino, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics (Ukraine), Institute of Solid State Physics (Moscow), and California State University, Los Angeles.
