The Cornell Future Food Summit is an unconventional, first-of-its-kind summit that aims to empower and connect food fighters to build a sustainable, innovative, and connected food system.


As co-founder and lead organizer, I oversee a team of 25 people working on partnerships & outreach, logistics & operations, and marketing & communications. I mainly work on building partnerships (in-kind or financial) with corporates, NGOs, and entrepreneurs. 

 If you're a stakeholder in the agrifood system and interested to be involved, please shoot me a message at sl874@cornell.edu


Shen is currently promoting her book titled “Hungry for Disruption: How Tech Innovations Will Nourish 10 Billion By 2050”, which provides a futuristic vision for embracing the scientific and technological advances in food for the coming decades. The book explores how breakthrough innovations in smart agriculture, farming systems, genomics, cellular agriculture, and food waste management will play a key role in the future of food and agriculture.

Shen does book talks and corporate workshops on the future of food and agriculture.
