Mats Küssner ist seit Oktober 2015 wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter am Lehrstuhl für Transkulturelle Musikwissenschaft. Zuvor war er Post-Doc im Centre for Performance Science am Royal College of Music. Er promovierte 2014 am King’s College London innerhalb des AHRC geförderten Center for Musical Performance as Creative Practice über das Thema Shape, drawing and gesture: cross-modal mappings of sound and music. Bevor er 2009 einen MSc in Music, Mind and Brain am Goldsmiths College, University of London erhielt, studierte Mats Küssner Psychologie an der Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (2005-07) und an der Universität von Amsterdam (2007/08). Gemeinsam mit Daniel Leech-Wilkinson hat er eine Sonderausgabe zum Thema ‘music and shape’ in Empirical Musicology Review herausgegeben.
