Rimmy E. Tomy is an associate professor of accounting at the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business. Her research primarily relates to regulation and enforcement in the financial sector. Tomy is interested in the role of external monitors in corporate oversight, and the role that informal institutions and community-based enforcement play in ensuring compliance. Her research also studies how accounting and other regulation can have unintended consequences because of firms’ strategic reaction to regulation. Effective enforcement requires an understanding of how firms take calculated actions in response to enacted and proposed regulation. Her work has been published in top journals such as The Review of Financial Studies and the Journal of Accounting and Economics. Tomy earned her Ph.D. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a B.Sc. from St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi.
