Rimmy E. Tomy’s research primarily relates to regulation and enforcement in the financial sector. Professor 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 Journal of Accounting and Economics and The Review of Financial Studies.

Professor Tomy earned her Ph.D. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She holds an M.S. in Accounting from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a B.Sc. from St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi. Professor Tomy has previous experience working at Ernst & Young LLP and McKinsey & Company.
