Bi Zhu is a professor in the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning at Beijing Normal University. From 2004 to 2010, she was a joint PhD. student at Beijing Normal University and at University of California, Irvine. In 2010, she received her PhD from Beijing Normal University (Advisor: Distinguished Prof. Chongde Lin; Co-advisors: Distinguished Prof. Elizabeth F. Loftus & Chancellor's Prof. Chuansheng Chen).
Her current work focuses on the studies of neural and genetic basis of human memory and cognitive development. Based on the Gene-Brain-Behavior project at Beijing Normal University, her lab uses several experimental approaches, including neuroimaging, genetics, and cognitive assessments, to study the genetic and environmental factors in human cognitive and brain development. Her research is mainly supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China, Specialized Research Fund for the Doctoral Program of Higher Education, and Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities. She teaches graduate courses on Cognitive Development and Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience. She is also an administration assistant in IDG/McGovern Institute for Brain Research at Beijing Normal University. She revised the Chinese textbook of Child Psychology (6th edition) published by People’s Education Press. She received the Li Yun award for young scholars, the elite talent award (the first prize), Yuan Dunli scientific education and physical education award, and the excellent new student mentor award by Beijing Normal University.
