Hello everyone! My name is Abdullah Mubarik. I am a senior majoring in the MCB Honors Concentrations with a minor in Chemistry. I am on the pre-med track and hope to be a cardiologist in the future. During the school year and over the summer, I research at the Mitchell Lab, a chem-bio lab. My research is focused on the discovery and characterization of RiPPs, or post-translationally modified peptides. Since I thoroughly enjoy chemistry, I hope to pass on my enthusiasm to other students and help them along the way as a Chemistry TA. I am also a board member of the Muslim Student Association here at UIUC. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading books, gardening, and playing sports with friends. Throughout the school year, you can find me participating in various intramural sports. And if you're looking for a TV show recommendation, my favorite show at the moment is Ted Lasso. I am always excited to meet new people and help others in any way I can, so please feel free to reach out!
