Crescente's interests are in legal, ethical, and social theory. He is particularly interested in understanding the ways in which social practices impact our obligations. His doctoral dissertation explores the relationship between contracts and promises and, more generally, the idea of normative power in law and morality.

Before coming to Oxford, Crescente studied at University of California, Berkeley, and at the Catholic University of Chile.
