Since 2008 ZC works as a Researcher in neuroscience at the University of Milano-Bicocca. ZC’s work focuses on the investigation of the neural correlates of perceptual and cognitive functions mainly using non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (TMS and tDCS). Large part of her research has been devoted to the study of cognitive functioning in visually impaired individuals. Her research on this topic has been funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs within the Executive programme of Italy-US cooperation in the field of science and technology. Z.C. obtained her Ph.D. in Psychology (2006) at the University of Pavia, she held afterwards a three years post-doc research position. During these years, she spent several months at the Helmholtz Institute in Utrecht University, at the University of Rochester (US), and at Harvard Medical School (US). In 2012, for her promising research, she received a FIRB (Basic research investment fund) funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). Finally, the European Society of Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP) has recently assigned ZC the Paul Bertelson Award 2015, assigned every two years to an outstanding young scientist for making a significant contribution to European Cognitive Psychology.
