Crucini received his M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Rochester and an Honors B.A. in Economics from the University of Western Ontario in Canada. He has held faculty appointments at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania; the Ohio State University; the Stern School of Business, New York University; and the Melbourne Business School.

Crucini's research focuses on international business cycle transmission, microeconomic and macroeconomic aspects of international price determination, and the role of commercial policy during the Great Depression.

Crucini lives in Brentwood, Tennessee with his wife, Jill, and their twin boys, Gabriel and Christopher.

Fall break, though, is always spent at a relaxing cabin in the Smoky Mountains!
