Ildiko Magyari applies cutting-edge econometrics and economic theory techniques to assess the competitive effects of proposed mergers and acquisitions and alleged anticompetitive behavior for industries such as chemicals, consumer products, media, technology, oil and gas, gaming (online and brick-and-mortar), sports betting, and shipping.

Dr. Magyari has helped clients formulate evidence-based arguments while navigating merger and acquisition review processes by competition authorities such as the US Federal Trade Commission, the US Department of Justice, the Canadian Competition Bureau, and the European Commission. She has also prepared economic analysis and calculated damages for cases that involve antitrust litigations, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, and subsidy disputes by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Dr. Magyari’s recent research has focused on the competitive effects of partial ownership interest in vertical and multi-sided platform mergers. Her academic research on the economics of firm and industry performance in global markets has been published by the Center of Economic Studies of the US Census Bureau and the National Bureau of Economic Research. Her research on the impact of Chinese imports on US employment has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and in reports by the Joint Economic Committee of the US Congress.

Prior to joining NERA, Dr. Magyari was a Special Sworn Status researcher at the US Census Bureau, where she developed a novel method for quantifying US firms’ domestic in-house versus offshore material-input sourcing. During her PhD program, she was a Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Fellow, a recipient of the Wueller Prize and the Harriss Prize, and taught courses on industrial organization. Dr. Magyari also received the Stanislav Vidovic Prize during her MA program and was the recipient of the prestigious Olga Radzyner Award.
