About Austin Nevin

Austin Nevin, chemist and conservator, has worked at the University of Goteborg since 2019. He was a researcher at the Italian National Research Council where he worked since 2011. His research focuses on the analysis of paintings and painting materials, and the study of ancient and modern cultural heritage using optical and spectroscopic techniques. He is the co-author of over 70 publications, an editor of Studies in Conservation and one of the editors of the Springer series Cultural Heritage Science and a member of the permanent scientific committee of the LACONA and of the TECHNART conferences.
He is a Vice President and Council Member and Fellow of the International Institute for the Conservation of Artistic and Historical Works (IIC) (since 2013). He also served as the coordinator of the Scientific Research Working Group of ICOM-CC (from 2011-2014)
Following a degree in Chemistry (MChem) from the University of Oxford (2001) and a 3-year MA in the Conservation of Paintings (Wall Paintings) from the Courtauld Institute of Art (2004), Nevin went on to obtain a PhD from the Courtauld. Between 2004-2007 he won a Marie Curie Early Stage Training Fellowship at IESL-FORTH (Greece) where his research focused on the analysis of paintings using laser-based techniques.
