He is a member of the VLSI lab and of the Mines Group. Since 2001 he is married with Silvia and they have a son, Andrea, and a daughter, Anna.

His research interests include VLSI design and implementation of architectures for digital signal processing, video coding, communications, artificial intelligence, machine learning and event-based processing.

Since December 2011, he is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Circuits, Systems and Computers and since 2018 he is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I , of Hindawi VLSI Design and of Hindawi Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Maurizio Martina has been the leading guest editor of the Special Issue on VLSI Circuits, Systems, and Architectures for Advanced Image and Video Compression Standards, Hindawi VLSI Design, Sep. 2012. He has been Tutorials, Special Sessions, and Awards co-Chair at NGCAS 2017 and one of the Guest Editors of a special section on papers related to low-power consuption from NGCAS 2017, published in the ASP Journal of Low Power Electronics (JOLPE). He has been one of the Guest Editors of a selection of the best papers from NGCAS 2017, published in Integration, the VLSI Journal. Moreover, he has been Demonstration Co-Chair at BioCAS 2017 and one the Guest Editors of the BioCAS 2017 special issue published in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems. He has been General Chair of the INTESA workshop, which was co-located with the Embedded Systems Week, Sep. 30 - Oct. 5, 2018, Torino, Italy and Guest Editor of the Special Issue "Selelcted papers from INTESA Workshop 2018". He has been part of the program committee of APPLEPIES 2018 (Applications in Electronics Pervading Industry, Environment and Society).

Maurizio Martina is a Senior Member of the IEEE and he act as Counselor for the IEEE Student Branch at Politecnico di Torino. Maurizio Martina is a professional member of HKN Polito.

On April 2017 he got the National Scientific Qualification to the role of Full Professor. He is the Reference Programme Faculty for the Bachelor and the Master in Electronic Engineering of Politecnico di Torino and the representative of Polito research unit at the Societa' Italiana di Elettronica (SIE). Moreover, he is part of the committee for Polito IT strategies.
