Engracia Madejón

I am a Senior Researcher at the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Seville (IRNAS) and member of the research group “sustainable use of the soil-plant system” (SOILPLANT).

Created in 1953, the IRNAS has been devoted to research activities in basic and applied science. This Institute is part of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), which is the legal entity and the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain.

My expertise is soil chemistry focused on soil conservation by using organic recycled materials. I also have developed several biochemical indicators of soil restoration in degraded and contaminated soils.

I am Vice President of the Spanish Society of Soil Science (SECS).

I am Editor in Chief of SOIL, a not-for-profit international scientific journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
