He was a Research and Teaching Assistant with the Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (LARICS) at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering at UNIZG-FER from 2006 to 2009. As a member of LARICS, he worked on several scientific and industrial projects in the field of robotics, control and automation.

In 2009 he started a new job but stayed connected to LARICS through his PhD research in the field of multi-robot coordination. While pursuing his PhD, he also participated in the EU-founded project titled Estimation and Control for Safe Wireless High Mobility Cooperative Industrial Systems (EC-SAFEMOBIL). He defended his PhD thesis entitled “Decentralized control of free-ranging automated guided vehicles in industrial environments” in 2018.

His research interests include autonomous systems, multi-robot coordination, and decentralized control. He has authored or co-authored several journal and conference papers, and has given talks at international conferences.
