Owen Fenton

Teagasc Environment, Soils and Land Use Department, Johnstown Castle, Co. Wexford, Ireland Y35 TC97



My research team investigates the source, transformation and fate of nitrogen within agricultural landscapes. I am particularly interested in hydrological and biogeochemical time lags and characterisation of land drainage systems. Other research looks at engineered solution to remediate mixed pollutant losses from agricultural ditch networks.

Research areas of interest for MSCA IF application:

  • Improved understanding of hydrological and biogeochemical time lags in agricultural catchments
  • Characterisation of land drainage systems using novel techniques
  • Engineered solutions for pollutant remediation

Prof Fenton has supervised 15 PhD and 3 MSc students to completion and 2 postdocs. Currently he is involved in both Marie Curie ITN and H2020 projects.
