Isabelle Ouellet-Morin
Professor at the School of Criminology

Isabelle Ouellet-Morin is a professor at the School of Criminology of the Université de Montréal, holds the Canada Research Chair on the Developmental Origins of Vulnerability and Resilience and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. As a researcher at the Research Centre of the University Institute of Mental Health of Montreal and at the Groupe de recherche et d'intervention psychosociale (GRIP), she examines the genetic, epigenetic, hormonal, behavioural and environmental mechanisms underlying the vulnerability and resilience of children, adolescents and young adults who are confronted with adversity to suffer from mental problems and behavioural disorders. She studies these issues notably through cohorts of children followed prospectively from birth to adulthood, quasi-experimental designs and randomized trials. She co-directs the Axel Centre - a gas pedal of technological intelligence in mental health - and is responsible for the Social Innovation axis of the Observatoire pour l'éducation et la santé des enfants (OPES), where she supports the development and dissemination of (techno)social innovations dedicated to supporting, in concert with community stakeholders, the optimal development of young people and to promoting their resilience, particularly those living in an adversarial context.
