Amber Ronteltap | Researcher | Research group Behaviour & Conversation in digital transition

Amber Ronteltap


Amber Ronteltap (1979) has been working as a senior behavioural researcher at the Research group Communication in Digital Transition since 2016. Her focus is on vulnerable groups. She graduated as a nutritionist from Wageningen University & Research, where she obtained her doctoral degree in 2008 with a dissertation on the public acceptance of new technology in nutrition. She subsequently worked as an applied researcher in consumer behaviour at Wageningen University & Research (WUR).

Amber's doctoral research, which was financed by The Dutch Research Council (NWO), investigated public responses to 'personalised nutrition' (PN): nutrition tailored to your genetic profile. To bring this complex subject to life for consumers, she worked in collaboration with the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) to film future scenarios regarding PN. PN remained as one of the main themes in her work as a consumer researcher at Wageningen University & Research.
