Jingjing Shen is currently a Ph.D. student at the College of Food Science and Engineering, Ocean University of China, under the instruction of Prof. Yaoguang Chang. Her research focuses on the gene-mining and characterization of glycoside hydrolases. She discovered and characterized the first member of GH168  and GH174 families , and contributed to the studies related to members of the following families:
- GH16: κ-carrageenase Cgk16A 
- GH82: ι-carrageenase Cgi82A 
- GH168: endo-1,3-fucanase Fun168A 
- GH174: endo-1,3-fucanase Fun174A
