Amber Ronteltap

Amber Ronteltap (1979) has been working as a senior researcher in behaviour at the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht since 2016, with a focus on vulnerable target groups. She graduated as a nutritionist at Wageningen University, obtained her PhD degree there in 2008 with a thesis on public acceptance of technology in nutrition, and worked as an applied consumer researcher at Wageningen UR from 2007 to 2016.

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.
