Emily Wyman

Rights Lab Head of Data Impact and Methods Development


Dr Emily Wyman leads the Rights Lab's data impact and methods development. She works with all five of our research programmes, with a particular focus on our Data & Measurement programme and our Ecosystems and the Environment programme, on the design and delivery of data-focused research projects. In this role she works in close collaboration with antislavery stakeholders in policy, business and civil society contexts to develop and apply innovative data and methods, and to achieve impact from data and methods-focused research. Her strategic partnership management focuses on exploring the data and method needs of the antislavery sector in order to inform Rights Lab research priorities, and on enhancing multi-sector cooperation to enhance the impact of the global movement to end modern slavery.  Before joining the Rights Lab in 2019, she spent over a decade conducting behavioural science research that investigated the the parameters of cooperative behaviour (RCTs), and applied insights and methods from behavioural science for field evaluations in development and commercial contexts (quasi-experiments).
