Hi! My name is Oliver Allen, but my friends call me Mel. I am a student at Indiana University Bloomington studying computer science and math with a minor in art history. When I'm not programming or memorizing the names of paintings I like to make art, walk my dog, and play marimba. Currently I am working in the Cognitive Development Lab, the Critical Food Studies lab, and CNetS at IU to develop tools to process, visualize, and leverage data to improve people's lives. I am passionate about climate change and study of misinformation, and I hope to make a difference in the world through crunching numbers and writing code.
