Welcome, Isabelle Ouellet-Morin!
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Dr. Isabelle Ouellet-Morin, as researcher, at the Centre for Studies on Human Stress. After earning her degree in clinical psychology (Laval University) and a certificate in criminology (University of Montreal), Isabelle Ouellet-Morin conducted her post-doctoral studies at the Institute of Psychiatry in London (King's College) where she studied the physiological stress response in the context of victimization. She recently took up a position as Assistant Professor at the School of Criminology at the University of Montreal and is affiliated with the Centre for Studies on Human Stress at the Fernand-Seguin Research Centre (Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital) and the Research Unit on children's psychosocial maladjustment (University of Montreal). Dr. Ouellet-Morin’ research activities focus on the physiological (hormonal, inflammatory and epigenetic) and cognitive mechanisms reflecting the impact of adversity (ex: abuse, negligence) on psychopathology and anti-social conducts in children, adolescent and adults. She is also interested in factors related to the vulnerability and resilience of individuals confronted with adversity. The clinical implications related to this knowledge, notably on intervention plans with at risk populations, are also in her future research plans.
Welcome, and good luck, Isabelle!
