HiGEM 2018 Team

Jessica DeVilla

  • Year: 2021

  • Concentration: Bioengineering

  • Secondary: Global Health and Public Policy


Jessica was brought to iGEM by her lifelong goal to genetically modify plasmids and introduce them to a bacterial genome for the induction of expression of a gene of interest. When she isn’t cloning, and sometimes while cloning, Jessica loves to dance in styles such as hiphop, tap, lyrical, and jazz. At Harvard, she is a member of the Crimson Dance Team, Harvard Venture, the Society of Women Engineers, and the Harvard College Impact Investing Group.

Aaron Hodges

  • Year: 2021

  • Concentration: Biomedical Engineering

  • Secondary: Music


Aaron Hodges was introduced to iGEM through Harvard's winter session, where he was inspired by his teammate Mark to pursue the team while ballroom dancing. Ever since joining, Aaron has enjoyed his time connecting with his teammates and intends to continue exploring synthetic bio as a facility for the betterment of medicine. On campus, Aaron is a part of The Harvard Undergraduate Drummers (THUD) where he composes and assists in directing original spin-off themed shows such as Whiplash (THUDlash) and The Godfather (THUDfather). Aaron hopes to get into a rhythm with his team and offer his project (ESPECIALLY the cloning) a beat it can't refuse.

Fay Huo

  • Year: 2020

  • Concentration: Mol. & Cell. Biology


Mark Theodore Meneses

  • Year: 2021

  • Concentration: Bioengineering


Mark was brought into iGEM by a previous team member during his initial visit from Harvard. Outside of the IGEM team, he is an avid ballroom dancer. you will most often see his hips parallel to that of Shakira. He dances all 4 styles which include American Smooth and Rhythm, and International Standard and Latin.

Tajrean Rahman

  • Year: 2020

  • Concentration: History and Science

  • Secondary: Integrative Biology


Tajrean has always been interested in the ways science interacts with society, from the lab to beyond, and iGEM provides her with a great opportunity to explore these scientific and ethical nuances. Outside of cloning and wiki-editing, Tajrean loves doing public service, and can often be found running around campus planning one event or another.

Nathan Sharp

  • Year: 2020

  • Concentration: Bioengineering (mechanical track)


Nathan is a rising junior at Harvard concentrating in Bio-engineering. Although originally interested in designing medical devices and implants, he was drawn to iGEM by the allure of international cloning glory. Outside of iGEM, Nathan is working (extremely slowly) towards his first Major title by playing on the Club Golf Team, and is honing his theater skills by acting in his house's drama society.
