About Me

John D. Gallemore studies corporate taxation, financial reporting, financial institutions, and regulation and regulators. His recent research explores how corporate tax enforcement aimed at small-and-medium-sized firms affects banks’ corporate lending, how firms perceive and respond to uncertainty over tax policy, and the role of tax department human capital in corporate tax compliance and avoidance. His published research documents the role of internal and external forces in facilitating corporate tax avoidance, the reputational consequences to tax avoidance, and the interaction of tax incentives and financial reporting. His papers have been accepted for publication in the Journal of Accounting & EconomicsJournal of Accounting Research, and Contemporary Accounting Research.

Gallemore teaches Strategic Cost Analysis and Performance Evaluation in the full-time MBA program. At Chicago Booth, he won the 2019 Emory Williams Award for Teaching Excellence, which is the school-wide teaching award, decided by students across the full-time, part-time, and weekend Booth MBA programs. He was also named one of Poets & Quants “Best 40 Under 40 MBA Professors” in 2019.

Gallemore earned his Ph.D. in accounting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Additionally, he holds a Master’s in Business Administration (where he finished first in his class), a B.S. in Business Administration, and a B.A. in Political Science, all from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Outside of research and teaching, Gallemore enjoys playing and watching sports, reading, traveling, and spending time with his wife and daughters.
