Emrys Schoemaker

"Working with an organisation and team that prioritises deep, rigorous research as the basis for translating actionable insights and strategy is a privilege. That our clients value our ethical foundation means we get to work on problems that matter to us all."

Emrys Schoemaker has been with Caribou Digital since 2014, leading research on identification systems, digital media and understanding the everyday use of digital technology. He gained his PhD at the London School of Economics on the relationship between social media and identity. This involved a year of ethnographic research on the interaction of religious identity and Facebook use in Pakistan. Prior to Caribou Digital, Emrys worked in strategic communications and development advising governments, donors, multilateral organisations such as the World Bank and United Nations as well as national and international NGOs. He also co-founded iMedia Associates, a media and communications company and Ekatay, a software company providing social accountability services to the international development sector. He has a background in community development and mediation, conflict resolution, strategic communications and research. He regularly runs workshops on these for a wide range of clients. Originally from the Cotswolds in the UK, he has worked across South Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and lived in Nepal, Pakistan and New York. He is currently based in Amman, Jordan
