Maxim was born in Belgium in 1995. After graduating from his Bachelor in Applied Computer Science at the Erasmushogeschool Brussels (2016), he earned his Master of Science in Applied Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2019). His Master's thesis was on Indoor Navigation by Centralized Tracking and led to his further career as a PhD student researching Hybrid Positioning and Implicit Human-Computer Interaction. Maxim is actively involved in the development of the open source hybrid positioning system OpenHPS, which was released in 2020.

With his OpenHPS framework, Maxim is creating an ecosystem of open source modules that can help researchers and developers create new positioning systems for indoor and outdoor use cases. Using the framework we also attempt to make research involving indoor positioning more accessible.

Apart from his research at the Web & Information Systems Engineering Lab, Maxim is the teaching assistant of various bachelor and master courses such as: Web Technologies, Databases, Next Generation User Interfaces, Information Visualisation and Advanced Topics of Information Systems. He is also involved in the supervision of Bachelor and Master theses related to hybrid positioning and the OpenHPS framework itself.
