Current research include studying the reliability of the taekwondo scoring system, designing an apparatus to help the visually impaired exercise and; looking at the effects of leg length discrepancies on gait. He has also done work related in anthropometry and talent identification. Moreover, Rizal has a particularly keen interest in investigating and finding solutions for applied problems in an array of different fields.

He has been the Deputy Director of Undergraduate Studies & Development at the Centre for Sport & Exercise Sciences, UM since 2016. He has also lead the transformation of UM sports facilities, which has seen a near ten fold increase in fixed monthly income in the last two years.
