Born and raised in HelsinkiFinland, Dr. Susi received his doctorate from the Aalto University School of Science. He completed a two-year FWF Lise Meitner fellowship at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna in Austria, and is now leading his own project.

The name, Mostly Physics, has a dual meaning: not only does it describe the content, it's also a self-ironic jab at the stereotypical physicist mentality (as captured by the webcomic xkcd).

Research highlights

Recent blog posts

Dr. Susi has authored 27 peer-reviewed articles, mostly on heteroatom-doped carbon nanotubes and graphene. His doctoral dissertation was selected as the 'Thesis of the Year 2011' by the Association of Finnish Engineers and Architects.

The (woefully rarely updated) blog is mostly about Toma's research and viewpoints on doing science, but also occasionally featuring other interests such as open access, consciousness research, artificial intelligence, and electronic music.
