About Me

EnviroDiy is amazing for discussing environmental monitoring – I live in N California and play in the water sensing and the Internet of Things paradigm – visualize it on the internet – so people in the watershed can discuss it.
Professionally I’m an electronics design engineer and enjoy playing with software, from Arduino to Beaglebone Black/PocketBeagle. Sometimes I need to do something zany and get myself into lots of trouble by designing my own hardware.

I professionally support the real work of scientists and hydrologists in  local stream monitoring done by TNC.org /TU.org.

My first instrument, as a startup ~ 1992, was a portable 2 channel EEG – https://github.com/neilh10/MindMirrorEeg.  I had an opportunity about 2008 as a self directed startup to design a wireless water depth logger based on TinyOS framework using a mega2560, Xbee 900Mhz and Cellular. Some still run today.

I also serve in a volunteer role on my local towns planning commission.
