Bio

Sorabh Tomar studies the effects of disclosure regulation in both corporate and non-corporate arenas. He has empirically investigated whether disclosure can ameliorate a negative externality driven by firm outputs, and how a change in performance-disclosure regime affects a contracting agent's effort. Tomar has a growing interest in firms' CSR/environmental performance disclosures, and believes these disclosures' prominence will only increase with time. He completed his PhD in accounting at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and earned bachelor's degrees in Commerce and Science at The University of Melbourne. In his spare time, he enjoys ultimate Frisbee, yoga and the gym.
