Bruce holds the South Australian State Government Chair of Petroleum Geology. He joined the Australian School of Petroleum in 2007 following fifteen plus years industry experience with Shell International Exploration and Production Company and two years as a Statoil and BP funded research assistant at the University of Liverpool, UK. His career has covered all aspects of the upstream petroleum industry from exploration to appraisal, development, production and research. Bruce worked for five years in Shell Research Laboratories and gained practical experience in exploration and production companies around the globe and has work experience of geological systems from fourteen countries. He has niche expertise in sedimentology, seismic and sequence stratigraphy and the application of the inherent uncertainties in these data and interpretations to multiple scenario three-dimensional reservoir modelling. Bruce is currently the leader of the ASP Reservoir Analogues Research Group (RARG; http://www.asprg.adelaide.edu.au/RARGwww/rarg_index.html) and leader of the WAVE Consortium (http://waveknowledgebase.net/) which focusses on reservoir heterogeneities in mixed process (wave/fluvial/tidal) sandbodies. From 2007 to 2010 he was Discipline Leader for the Reservoir and Seals Characterisation group, CO2CRC (CO2 geosequestration).
