About me and this site

I am the Executive Director of the Biomedical Informatics Program in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University School of Medicine. I am also an Executive in Residence at Plug and Play Technology Center in Sunnyvale, California (a large startup incubator). In addition, I advise the Population Health Sciences program at Stanford (under the somewhat vacuous title of Managing Director for Industry and Integration), focusing on Population Health Sciences, industry partnerships, and data integration opportunities with an emphasis on enabling the improvement of the health of populations.


  • Startups
  • More about my work (including links to publications, patents, videos, open source projects, press, professional activities, talks, etc)
  • A few examples of personal interests

For more information feel free to check me out on LinkedIn or read my bio or about my research interests. I'm also a winemaker, a bit of a music freak (see a few spotify playlists here) and sports nut, and a big fan of solar even though I drive a gas-guzzling old SUV. So yeah, contradictions abound.

I'm @hjs on twitter (yes, that should tell you how long I have been on twitter, but I am not very active there and my handle constantly gets mis-tagged).

And if we know each other socially (clarity test: you'd have me over at your home or vice versa), let's connect on fb.


P.S. This is a personal site and you can tell that it is pretty bare bones and I did not spend *any* time on how to make it pretty.
