About Me

Edit content here

Dr Rebar is National Health and Medical Research Council research fellow and senior lecturer at Central Queensland University, Australia. Dr Rebar’s research focuses on the psychology of behaviour change and health behaviour motivation, with particular emphasis on dual process models and non-conscious, automatic processes (e.g., habits, implicit attitudes, approach/avoidance tendencies) that influence health behaviours. While her work draws on a range of methodologies, she is a strong advocate for longitudinal repeated assessment designs and multi-level analysis for testing predictive relationships in real-world contexts.
