In Amber’s PhD research, funded by NWO, she studied public responses to ‘personalised nutrition’ (PN): a diet aligned with people’s genetic profile. To bring this complex matter to life for lay people, Amber made short movies of different future scenarios together with the University of the Arts (HKU). In her subsequent job as a consumer researcher at Wageningen UR, PN continued to be one of her main subjects of study.
