Linda Moloney Finn

Laboratory Manager & H&S Coordinator

Research Interests

I am the laboratory manager for the Teagasc Johnstown Castle site. My main duties include the management of laboratory facilities and/or the co-ordination of activities in our Soil, Gas, Water, Crop, Ecology, Spectroscopy and Micro/Molecular labs. I am also the H&S co-ordinator for the labs and am responsible for implementing and managing Teagasc’s H&S system on site. I am also the Nautilus LIMS super-user for the site.

Prior to taking up the laboratory manager position I worked in the Soil and Crop labs analysing samples for mineral content by ICP-OES following microwave digestion and various extraction techniques.  

Current Projects

As the laboratory manager I help research staff, technical staff and students to conduct their research activities in the laboratories.
