My name is Maria Yang (in Chinese: 杨肇敏). I am a Chinese American and the daughter of immigrants. I currently live in Seattle with my family.

I never intended to become a psychiatrist, yet here I am. My interests in psychiatry are where it intersects with everything else, particularly public health. Here’s my CV. Teaching is one of my strengths.

I have maintained a blog about medicine, psychiatry, and observations about life in various iterations since 2000. (You can read my brief history on the internet.)

You can contact me at maria at mariayang dot org. I read every e-mail I receive from a human, though I’m sorry that I am unable to respond to them all.
