Before becoming a Faculty Fellow, Professor Monroe earned both a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University. He worked as a research analyst at CNA, working on manpower, personnel, and budget issues for the Navy and hurricane preparedness for the Navy and FEMA. He was also active in local civil liberties and human rights organizations, including serving as Vice-President of the Connecticut Network to Abolish the Death Penalty when Connecticut abolished its death penalty.
Professor Monroe’s current research explores how legislation and regulation interact to promote or retard energy efficiency and other efforts to mitigate climate change. He is especially interested in interdisciplinary approaches to mitigating climate change and interpreting current legislation in light of scientific, technological, and policy developments. Professor Monroe also writes on criminal justice policy and the interactions between criminal law, criminal procedure, and social science.
