Born in Shanghai, Zheng-Yu Wu made her public debut at the age of seven in the Concert Hall of the Shanghai Conservatory playing Wieniawski's Scherzo-Tarantelle . After focussing on physics and mathematics, she returned to the Shanghai Conservatory in 2000, studying with Professor Zhi-Nuo Ding. In 2002, she was a prizewinner in the Postacchini Competition and had further competition successes in 2003. She gave her debut recital in the Shanghai Grand Theatre and has since played with the leading Chinese orchestras in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Wenzhou, Henan and Xinjiang.

Zheng-Yu has performed in England, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain, and, in January 2007, she released her first CD in China.
