Mimi Onuoha is a Brooklyn-based new media artist and researcher investigating the social results of data collection and computational categorization. Her work uses code, writing, performance, and objects to explore missing data and the ways in which people are abstracted, represented, and classified.

Onuoha has been in residence at Eyebeam, Studio XX, the Data & Society Research Institute, Columbia University’s Tow Center, and the Royal College of Art. She has published written pieces with Quartz, FiveThirtyEight, National Geographic, Nichons-Nous Dans L'Internet, Columbia University Journalism Review, and others. She has exhibited and presented workshops in festivals internationally, and in 2014 she was selected to be in the inaugural class of Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellows. She is currently Creative-in-Reference at Olin College.
