Senior Research Associate
Carlos Monteiro is a Senior Research Associate in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and earned his Ph.D. in Criminology and Justice Policy from Northeastern University. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Suffolk University. Dr. Monteiro’s research has largely centered on corrections and reentry with targeted investigations of the collateral consequences of criminal convictions, however; he currently serves as co-principal investigator and project director for two National Institute of Justice studies on Correctional Officer Wellbeing, with specific emphases on stress and suicide. In addition to his work on the CO stress studies, Carlos has coordinated several correctional projects including an assessment of reentry programs and practices at a county correctional facility and comprehensive recidivism studies for inmates released from two county correctional facilities. With combined expertise in education and criminal justice policy, Carlos’s research have long centered on the factors affecting access to, and quality of, education for young adults of color. Today, his scholarly interests are still tied to race, ethnicity, and educational access, but particularly as those interact to produce disparate outcomes across the criminal justice system and within corrections specifically.
