About Mona Chalabi

Data journalist and visualizer Mona Chalabi touches on some of the most personal aspects of the modern condition, from smoking rates to cost of living to rent, using empirical illustrations of data and economics with a unique artistic twist. In 2019, she brought her approach to Netflix’s panel show The Fix. She is also known for her work with FiveThirtyEight and The Guardian. Late in the year, her story on the rising costs of funeral services in the NY Review of Books elegantly combined brilliant storytelling with engaging visuals. Currently, she has more than 165K followers on Instagrams, not to mention another 70K on Twitter.
