The future in focus
NAU’s commitment to research has grown considerably over the years. Here in the College of Engineering, Informatics, and Applied Sciences, we’ve attracted some of the best faculty in every discipline by giving them an academic home that empowers them to do their best scholarly activity, while ensuring that students (undergraduate and graduate alike) get the chance to work closely with these experts on new research. Because we prepare our students to be more than relevant—we equip them to stay ahead.
School of Informatics, Computing, and Cyber Systems
Professor of practice Bertrand Cambou’s research focuses on cybersecurity and applying microelectronics to strengthen hardware security, including the design of novel public key encryption methods, password generation systems, physically unclonable functions, and true random number generators.

Associate professor of mechanical engineering Heidi Feigenbaum’s research is focused on theoretical and applied mechanics, including, but not limited to, plastic deformation of materials, adaptive materials, structural mechanics, continuum mechanics, biomechanics, and biomimetics. Learn more
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Professor of civil and environmental engineering Paul Gremillion tracks the movement of mercury and other metals in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, with an emphasis on histories of metals deposition as recorded by aquatic sediment cores. He also provides support for international organizations in areas that include transboundary management of water resources and ecosystems.
