David Gallo is an American oceanographer and explorer. For nearly 30 years he was Director of Special Projects at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution – a preeminent, globally recognized scientific laboratory. Subsequently he was Senior Adviser for Strategic Initiatives at RMSTitanic Inc., a position he had to give up because of CoVid-19. Today, although independent he remains at the forefront of ocean exploration, participating in, being witness to and communicating the development of new technologies and scientific discoveries that shape our view of planet earth.

He feels strongly that instead of taking the oceans for granted we need to recognize the oceans critical role in providing the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. The oceans hold the clues to our past, they control our present, and they are the key to future life on this planet. In recognition of his role in exploration and science communications David is a recipient of a Computerworld-Smithsonian Award, the Explorer’s Club Lowell Thomas Medal, and the Frances Hutchinson Medal of the Garden Clubs of America. He is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a National Fellow of The Explorers Club, a TED-All Star, and a recipient of the Lotus Club Distinguished Achievement Award.
