Marie Comuzzo

Musicologist | Scholar-Activist | Musician

Marie Comuzzo is a PhD student at Brandeis University in Musicology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (MA). Her primary research explores the relationship between humans and whales through sound, and the impact that recognizing their vocal expression as song had in saving them on a global level. Read here her most recent article published by  SEM Student News. She also conducts qualitative research on the impact that beauty standards have in the careers of women and gender queer people within Western classical music. 


Marie works at Brandeis University Press as publishing associate, and is a doctoral intern for “Rebalancing the Music Canon,” a digital musicology project at Tuffs University. An open-access music data project which aims to make works by un(der)- represented people more discoverable, decenter the musical canon, and make data-driven music scholarship more diverse and inclusive.


When not studying, she loves to play music, garden, cook, read, swim, kayak, spend time with her loved ones, make art, and play with her cat friend Zenobia.
