Is a PHD candidate researching in Embedded Systems for Environment Monitoring, their design for robustness and low power consumption. The PHD is focused on minimizing human interaction with automatic weather stations, particularly on the development of new techniques to improve reliability of the software, hardware and power supply to deliver ‘deploy and forget’ designs to the industry and meteorological authorities to save time and money. He pursed his Masters’ Degree in Electronic Communications and Computer Engineering in Dec 2011 at The University of Nottingham.
He is a lecturer at Makerere University lecturing Embedded Systems, Computer Programming, Digital Processing, Audio & Speech Signal Processing doubling as a structured C/C++, Object Oriented Programming in C# and Management Information Systems lecturer at Victoria University.
Maximus has experience in Electronic engineering from Chilwell (April to December, 2011) where he researched in concrete preservation technologies and the development and manufacture of patented electrochemical corrosion prevention systems, a Software developer with Ikanos in the United Kingdom where he developed the core classes for WPF Enterprise Applications (April to October, 2010), Instrumentation and microcontroller programming from the Uganda Industrial Research Institute (April to October, 2010)
