Marie Ouellet

Senior Fellow


Marie Ouellet is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the International Centre for Comparative Criminology at the Université de Montréal. Her research focuses on the intersection of network analysis, co-offending, and the criminal career, particularly around issues of group emergence and persistence.

For her dissertation she examined the network dynamics of terrorist organizations.  Currently, she is collaborating with Professor Carlo Morselli on a project that examines the network parameters of collusion.

This study analyzes patterns in firm interactions to detect, identify, and examine the careers of collusive cartels across space and time.
