Emily Rosenorn-Lanng


Emily Rosenorn-Lanng is a researcher and project manager at the National Centre for Cross Disciplinary Social Work (NCCDSW) at Bournemouth University. She joined the NCCDSW in 2012 to apply her expertise in psychology, research methods and statistics to the health and social care sector. As a researcher at Bournemouth University since 2006, Emily has contributed to various public consultation and commercial research projects in diverse sectors, such as Health and Social Care, Local Government, Tourism and Heritage.

Emily has a strong background in psychology and statistics. She holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Winchester and has completed several courses and workshops on research methods and data handling. She is proficient in using various software and tools, such as SPSS, R, Python, C#, Microsoft Teams, Adobe Captivate, Illustrator, Photoshop, Audition, and PowerPoint. She has worked with various clients and stakeholders, such as local authorities, education, tourism and event organisations, heritage sites, and healthcare and social care providers.

Emily’s specialisation is quantitative research methods, covering all aspects from questionnaire design to data handling and statistical analysis. She has collaborated with the Centre for Workforce Intelligence, the National Institute for Health Research, and other organisations to provide consultancy and evaluation services. She has also led and supported various initiatives that aim to create impactful and innovative learning tools for different audiences.

One of her main areas of interest is game-based learning, which she is currently pursuing as a part-time PhD student at Bournemouth University. She is involved in the development and evaluation of CyGamBIT, a cyber security game-based interactive learning tool that teaches young people how to stay safe online and develop their digital skills. She has also co-created The Mental Capacity Toolkit, a web-based resource that helps social workers and other professionals to assess and support people’s mental capacity in various situations. These are examples of her innovative research outputs that have a positive social impact.

Emily is also passionate about generative AI, cybersecurity, and accessibility, and has obtained numerous certifications and credentials in these fields from LinkedIn and Adobe. She has also participated in the InnovateUK CyberASAP, a pre-accelerator for cyber security start-ups, where she developed a prototype of a cyber security game based-learning tool that can create responsive and engaging learning content.

Emily has published several research papers and reports on topics such as mental capacity, cyber fraud, child mortality, leadership development, and more. She also leads the social media strategy for the NCCDSW and has a key role in the co-ordination of conferences and online sites. She is also active on social media, where she shares her research findings and insights. You can find more information about her on LinkedIn or follow her on Twitter @CyGamBITuk

If you are interested in collaborating with Emily or learning more about her work, please feel free to connect with her on LinkedIn.

Some of the topics and methods that she has explored in her research are: 

  • Comparing the mortality rates of different countries and diseases, using statistical analysis and population-based data. For example, she has examined the trends and causes of brain disease deaths, cancer deaths, and child abuse-related deaths in the UK, the US, and other Western countries.
  • Developing and evaluating game-based learning interventions to improve social work education and practice. For example, she has created a critical reflection board game and a decision-making board game to help social workers enhance their skills and knowledge.
  • Conducting impact evaluations and consultancy for various organisations and authorities in the health and social care sector. For example, she has supported the Centre for Workforce Intelligence in creating a forecasting model for the social care workforce and provided consultancy to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care.
  • Investigating the preferences and challenges of older people when using digital technology, especially digital games. She has also produced guidance and advice on cyber fraud and scamming for social workers and the public.
