Deon is a postdoctoral fellow at West Virginia University. He studies nutrient transport and processing in coastal freshwater systems including tidal freshwater zones and coastal aquifers of the Great Lakes. His current work aims at understanding how inorganic nitrogen is processed in channels and thermokarst lakes of arctic deltas before discharging to the Arctic Ocean. Outside of research Deon enjoys spending time with family, cooking, drumming, and playing tennis, soccer, cricket, and video games.
