Benjamin Van Mooy is an Oceanography and senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. His work primarily focuses on chemical oceanography, with a particular focus on the production and Remineralisation of marine organic matter.

He is credited with the discovery of sulfolipid substitution for Phospholipid in Plankton in times of Limiting nutrient[1], and the production of viral Glycosphingolipid as a result of infection from Coccolithovirus in Emiliania huxleyi[2].
