The address "fab33150ā€@ufl.edu" does not seem to appear in the code. But the email address that is there has a pair of extra quote marks (after "mailto") causing the issue:

<!-- this line has extra quote marks -->
    <p>Contact me at <a href="mailto:""coolvrexperience@gmail.com">this email</a>.</p>
<!-- here is a corrected version -->
    <p>Contact me at <a href="mailto:coolvrexperience@gmail.com">this email</a>.</p>
