Kevin is the treasurer of UVA's Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine (VGEM) Team. He is a fourth-year chemical engineering major with a concentration in biotechnology. Kevin is hoping to either attend law school for intellectual property, or work in industry to implement green practices.
One of my ideas includes creating a Pac-Man like game using chemotaxis and cell-cell signalling. This would require designing two different bacteria to follow 'chemical trails.' If one bacteria encountered the other, the "Pac-Man" would undergo programmed cell death. A second idea is playing with RNA interference (via miRNA, siRNA, or taRNA) and using these small RNA's to create a very precise output.
