Raised in HelsinkiFinland, I received
my doctorate in 2011 from Aalto University. After moving to Austria for a two-year FWF Lise Meitner fellowship at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna I stayed to lead my own project. In 2017, I received the ERC Starting Grant to manipulate materials with atomic precision.

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).

I have authored over 40 peer-reviewed articles, mostly on heteroatom-doped carbon nanotubes and graphene.
