Tomi Koivisto received his PhD from the Helsinki Institute of Physics in 2006. Since then he has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the universities of Heidelberg in Germany, Utrecht in the Netherlands and Oslo in Norway, two years in each respectively. He begun an assistant professorship at Nordita in October 2013.

Tomi's field of research is gravitation and cosmology, with the main emphasis on quantum and classical extensions of the theory of general relativity and their cosmological and astrophysical implications. He has worked extensively on dark energy, early universe inflation and alternative cosmologies. His contributions have established new connections between large scale structure observations and fundamental physical theories, and he is a member of the Euclid consortium theory group. In the field of gravity theories, his main foci are the gravitational aspects of higher dimensional theories such as D-brane scenarios in type II string theory, and nonlocal approaches to the problems of renormalisability and the cosmological constant.
