Career overview

Maxime Feyerick was born in Leuven, Belgium in 1995.

In 2018, he received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the KU Leuven, Belgium. The subject of his master’s thesis was the design of low-energy digital logic cells for always-on systems targeting kHz-range operating frequencies.

Currently, he is working as a research assistant at the MICAS research group under the guidance of prof. dr. ir. Wim Dehaene towards a PhD degree on the IC design for high-resolution neurostimulator design for visual prostheses. Similar to a cochlear implant, a visual prosthesis promises to restore vision to the blind. The emphasis on the circuit level lies in creating compact stimulator channels that are nevertheless high-voltage compatible with the high-impedance micro-electrodes in such application. This allows to integrate many channels in one system, providing the thousands of channels projected to be required for useful image recreation.
