Aaron Galloway is an Associate Professor at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, the marine lab of the University of Oregon. Dr. Galloway leads the Coastal Trophic Ecology Lab (CTELab), which is generally focused on trophic inferences in marine benthic food webs, with an emphasis on algae-invertebrate interactions and kelp forest ecology. To do this work, the group often uses fatty acids as trophic biomarkers, paired with underwater natural history, scuba diving, lab and field experimentation, and modeling. Dr. Galloway and members of his lab work in coastal nearshore areas of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and Antarctica.
