My name is Dan Rimkus, and I am an Accounting PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin. I am currently on the academic job market and seeking opportunities for a tenure track faculty position.
My research primarily focuses on using lab experiments to study topics in auditing. In particular, I am interested in the evidence collection decisions of auditors, the willingness of client personnel to cooperate with audit requests, and how social factors influence both auditor and client decisions in an interactive environment.
Prior to the PhD program, I worked in Chicago as an auditor for KPMG and as a corporate accountant for McDonald's. In my free time, I am an avid endurance runner. I have completed several marathons, and more recently, a 50 mile ultramarathon. I am thankful to have a wonderful wife, Nicki, who willingly attends these very long races.
