Dr Austin has been collaborating with researchers at UNIS, notably Dr Riko Noormets, to unravel the marine climate history of the high Arctic and the north Svalbard margin in particular.

 UNIS attracts students from all over the world to study at the northernmost higher education institute, located in Longyearbyen at 78*N.
