Bruce Kjarsgaard is a Senior Research Scientist with the Geological Survey of Canada with 25+ years experience that range from regional geological mapping to detailed deposit scale studies, including experimental petrology. His forte is solving problems utilizing broad-based igneous petrology methods (including mineralogy, major and trace element mineral chemistry, whole rock geochemistry, experimental petrology, volcanology) of mantle-derived CO2-rich ultramafic rocks (kimberlites, carbonatites) and economic mineralization associated with these rocks.

Bruce has supervised and co-supervised fifteen successful Ph.D. candidates (Memorial University, Canada; Gutenberg Universitat Mainz, Germany; Durham University, England; Carleton University, Canada; University of Otago, New Zealand; University of Alberta), and multiple M.Sc. and B.Sc. students.

Bruce obtained his B.Sc. (Specialized Honors Earth Science) at the University of Guelph, Canada, in 1986 and his Ph.D. from The University of Manchester, England, 1990.
