John Gallemore studies financial reporting and the banking sector, with a focus on the effects of accounting on the behavior of financial institutions and their regulators. He is also interested in the effect of taxes on economic outcomes. Prior to his return to academia, he worked as a consultant for Navigant Consulting. His work on projects involving banks that failed during the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s provided additional insights into the interactions between accounting information, bank choices, and regulation.
While a PhD candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Gallemore was awarded one of ten 2012 Deloitte Foundation Doctoral Fellowship Awards. He received the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School Outstanding PhD Student Award in 2014 and was also the American Accounting Association’s representative at the 2013 European Accounting Association Doctoral Colloquium in Paris, France.
Gallemore holds a doctorate in accounting, an MBA in corporate finance, a BS in business administration, and a BA in political science, all from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Gallemore joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2014.
