I am currently a PhD at a decent university in Math and applying for a part time grad student job in a Fintech company in one of the major centers for finance. I applied for the job by responding to an e-mail and now they asked me to do an onsite interview. The entire application process was informal since they always addressed me by my first name and now I wonder what I should wear. I just wonder whether wearing a suit might be weird in this case?

Treat this as you would any other formal job interview.
Wear a formal business suit, including plain shirt and an inoffensive tie (No cartoon characters).
Wear good, formal shoes - not patent leather ("dress" shoes). Plain black/grey/white socks (basically again, not things with cartoons.
Your choice of underwear, but definitely something and comfortable.
Accessorize - belt, and cufflinks if appropriate. Go for simple. Do not wear braces (US "suspenders").
