From November 2012 to June 2013 he was employed in the laboratory of the Institute of Sports Science at the University of Vienna as an associate in a research project. He was first employed as an associate at the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Zagreb, from September 2015 until August 2016, and later, from January 2018, as a postdoc in the research project and on the Quantitative Methods class.

He is the author of over thirty scientific publications in the field of kinesiology and sports medicine, out of which a significant number is published in internationally acknowledged scientific journals, indexed by the Web of Science.
