Dr. Justin Lambright

Justin LambrightDr. Lambright teaches almost the entire range of courses offered by the Department of Mathematics, such as Explorations in Mathematics and Calculus, as well as Mathematical Models and Geometry. He has also offered a Seminar in Error Correcting Codes and Crytography.

His research interests are related to the fields of combinatorics and algebra and currently focus on a special family of polynomials, which are a generalization of Kazhdan and Lustig's modified R-polynomials. These polynomials, which arise naturally in the Iwahori-Hecke algebra of a Coxeter group as well as the quantum polynomial ring, have integer valued coefficients which count certain paths in the Bruhat Graph of the Symmetric Group.

Together with Dr. Taylor, Dr. Lambright leads Anderson University's Research Experiences in Mathematics, a group of students who are actively working on original research stemming from questions which arose in his dissertation. Currently, the students are being supported by a mini-grant from CURM, which has provided the students with opportunities to present their results at other area colleges, as well as at conferences across the country.

Outside of mathematics and being a professor, Dr. Lambright's prime joy in life is being a husband and father. He is also very active at Maple Grove Church of God in Anderson, IN, where he serves on the Church Council.

Dr. Justin Lambright has served at Anderson University since 2011.
