She is an active scholar and author of Antitrust Settlements: How a Simple Agreement Can Drive the Economy, published by Wolters Kluwer and co-author and editor of two forthcoming books with Cambridge University Press on antitrust and regulatory policies in the digital economy. She has published multiple articles that investigate antitrust and regulatory issues related to digital markets, blockchain, AI and software, and is invited regularly to present her work internationally.

She attained her PhD at Bocconi University in Milan.
In new research, Giovanna Massarotto explains how collusion manifests differently in the digital economy. She argues that antitrust regulators, scholars, and courts need to incorporate lessons from computer science to update how they monitor markets and identify algorithmic collusion.
Companies increasingly use sophisticated computational tools to compete, particularly in digital markets. Giovanna Massarotto outlines how antitrust agencies must similarly modernize and adopt advanced technologies to address complex antitrust enforcement challenges effectively and remain relevant.
