I had seen this popup across different sites, but I realized my computer was infected once I got hit with it on stackexchange!

I'm using Google Chrome on Mac computer, and I've checked my extensions. Nothing is suspicious about the extensions I have.

How do I find the process running this code injection and remove it from my computer? And what tools are best for the job?

    They are not. PCs and Macs are exactly the same. Windows and OS X are different, but the advice is really still the same. – Daniel B Oct 14 '16 at 17:13

I would recommend Malwarebytes as the tool to use to get rid of the adware.

Found a simple walkthrough to help you remove some extensions manually as well (Not sure if you tried these steps already.)
