Born and raised in Helsinki, Finland, Prof Toma Susi received his doctorate in nanomaterials from Aalto University in 2011. After moving to Austria for a two-year fellowship at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna, Toma is now leading his own project and has fully made the city his home. He has authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles, mostly on heteroatom-doped graphene and carbon nanotubes, and has been an active participant and organizer of international conferences and an advocate for open access publishing. More recently, the research interests of Prof Susi have moved towards using the Ångström-sized electron probe of a scanning transmission electron microscope for single-atom manipulation of impurities in graphene.
