The Future of Food and Agriculture

Shen speaks about harnessing the power of science and technology to transform our global food systems. With knowledge of breakthrough innovations across the entire food chain (including smart agriculture, novel farming systems, genomics, cellular agriculture, and food waste technology), Shen’s unique insights reveal how tech innovations can increase food production—both quantitatively and qualitatively—in an increasingly resource-scarce future. By revealing how technological advances help us re-imagine our food system, Shen gives her audiences hope that the future of nourishing the world is a sustainable, inclusive, and delicious one.

Pursuing Passion with Purpose

What does it mean to lead a fulfilling and passionate life? How do you build your own path, instead of following a set one? How do you build a career driven by impact rather than power? Shen shares her journey of pursuing passion with purpose and her key lessons on happiness and hustling. As a young person navigating the sometimes confusing and complex world we live in, she speaks about re-defining and rejecting a broken definition of success in today’s society. Ultimately, Shen hopes to inspire others to pursue their truest purpose and to be their most authentic selves.
