Sem visokošolski učitelj na Fakulteti za ŠportUniverze v Ljubljani in višji znanstveni sodelavec na Inštitutu Jožef Stefan. Doktorat sem leta 2011 pridobil za raziskovalno delo na področju učinkov višinske/hipoksične in hiperoksične vadbe na fiziološke adaptacije in športno sposobnost. V letih 2013/2014 sem bil podoktorski raziskovalec na Univerzi v Cape Town, Faculty of Health Sciences Department of Human Biology, UCT/MRC Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine.

Moje raziskovalno delo obsega preučevanje adaptacijskih fizioloških mehanizmov na različne okoljske dejavnike, predvsem višino/hipoksijo in temperaturo, tako pri zdravih posameznikih kot tudi v kliničnih populacijah.
