Full Bio

Data journalist Mona Chalabi is on a mission to, as she puts it, “take the numb out of numbers.”

In her illustrations, animations, and articles for the Guardian and publications like Fivethirtyeight and The New York Times, she explores data sets from the timely (affirmative action, voting trends, disability rights) to the offbeat (popular dog names in New York City) to the eye-opening (how many Americans eat pizza for breakfast). She’s on a mission to make sure as many people as possible can find and question the data they need to make informed decisions about their lives. In her lectures she shares the tools you need to navigate a world filled with data and how to better understand all the numbers from the noise. Chalabi recently named to Fortune’s 40 Under 40 in Media & Entertainment.
