Suddhaseel Sen is a doctoral candidate in musicology, and is working on a dissertation on cross-cultural exchanges between Indian and European musicians in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries under the supervision of Dr. Anna Schultz. Prior to his joining the doctoral program, Suddhaseel arranged Indian music for Western ensembles in India and Canada, in addition to doing academic research in English literature. His current research has been supported by a Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship, a Steven and Debra J.

Suddhaseel's musical interests include Indian music and the orchestral, chamber, and operatic repertoires of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.
