Dr. Zhu is Principal Investigator of the California Smokers' Helpline, a statewide tobacco cessation service recently recognized with an Award for Program Excellence from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. His research focuses on smoking behaviour and cessation interventions, with a bent toward population-based studies. He began his research with general adult populations and has extended to adolescents, pregnant smokers, smokers using pharmacotherapy, and smokers of low socio-economic status.

His work is noted for its quick application of research findings to public health settings, and was honoured with a University of California Wellness Lecture Award from the California Wellness Foundation. A psychologist with a strong background in research methodology, Dr. Zhu has published on intervention as well as experimental design. He consults widely with national and international health and governmental agencies and has been a consultant for the World Health Organization and the World Bank on tobacco control initiatives.
