Fiona Scott Morton's Biography

Dr Fiona M. Scott Morton  is a professor of economics at the Yale University School of Management and a former deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s antitrust division.

In mid 2023, she was appointed Chief Economist of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition.  Despite her impeccable professional credentials, and the support of well known economists, she later withdrew her candidacy following political pushback from certain quarters in regard to her prior advisory work with big tech and as she is not a citizen of the EU.

She is the Theodore Nierenberg Professor of Economics at the Yale School of Management, where she has been on the faculty since 1999. Her area of academic research is industrial organization, with a focus on empirical studies of competition. The focus of her current research is competition in healthcare markets and the economics of antitrust. From 2011–12, Professor Scott Morton served as the Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Economic Analysis (Chief Economist) at the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where she helped enforce the nation’s antitrust laws. At Yale SOM, she teaches courses in the area of competitive strategy and antitrust economics. She served as Associate Dean from 2007–10 and has won the school’s teaching award three times.

She founded and directs the Thurman Arnold Project at Yale, a vehicle to provide more antitrust programming and policy projects to Yale students. Professor Scott Morton has a BA from Yale and a PhD from MIT, both in Economics. She is a frequent speaker at seminars and conferences across the United States and Europe.
