Dr. Rahuldeep Singh Gill was born in India, but was raised and educated in the United States. He holds his doctorate from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in Religious Studies. He is currently the assistant professor of religion at California Lutheran University where he teaches a variety of religion courses, focusing on Sikh history and doctrine, but also teaching Introduction to Christianity and Religions of South Asia.
Professor Gill's work has focused on the evolution of Sikh institutions over five hundred years of the tradition's history, as well as the interaction of Sikhs, Muslims, and Hindus. His research explores the life and works of the Sikh tradition's most important interpretive writer, Bhai Gurdas Bhalla (d. 1636), and his scholarly articles have been published widely, including in the Encyclopedia of Indian Religions, and the Journal of Punjab Studies.
