Vincent J. Hare

Dr Vincent Hare is a lecturer in the department, and is affiliated with the Stable Light Isotope Laboratory. His research interests span palaeoclimatology, Quaternary palaeoenvironments, dating methods, and the application of stable isotopes to fossil materials, past climate change and the carbon cycle. He holds degrees in both Physics and Archaeological Sciences from the University of Cape Town and Oxford (MSc, DPhil), where he was Clarendon Scholar. 

He is currently a member of the American Geophysical Union and the European Geophysical Union, Secretary of the Southern African Society for Quaternary Research, and Past Global Changes (PAGES) Early Career Representative for Africa.
