Professor Marx’s research focuses on the problem of anti-competitive behavior by individuals and firms, including collusion and anti-competitive contract provisions. This research improves our ability to detect collusion, teaches us how auctions and other markets can be made less susceptible to collusion, and guides antitrust authorities in understanding what behavior should be viewed as anti-competitive. Her research on auctions has been used in modifying the design of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s spectrum license auctions to make those auctions more robust to collusion. Techniques developed by Marx for evaluating the likelihood of collusion following a merger have been used in arguments before the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
