Mario was born in Imotski, Republic of Croatia, on December 10, 1975. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Split, FESB, and received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering in December, 1998. Afterwards, he worked shortly as a Java software developer.
In 2000 he was granted a pre-doctoral scholarship by Communication System Department at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). After finishing the pre-doctoral school in 2001, he joined Laboratory for computer Communications and Applications (LCA) at EPFL. Mario defended his thesis titled Thwarting Selfish and Malicious Behavior in Wireless Networks on January 16, 2006, and received the Ph.D. degree in Communication Systems.
In September 2006, Mario joined the University of Split, FESB as an Assistant Professor. In 2010 and 2016 he was promoted to Associate Professor and Full Professor, respectively.
Mario's research interests center on computer and network (wired and wireless) security, aplied cryptography, game theory, wireless sensor networks and IoT.
