Dr. Lambert has been involved in teaching Physics and Math at Redeemer since 2005 and more recently as an adjunct professor since 2015. God gave him a love of learning about His world and His word which resulted in a research career in physical chemistry, missions in Kenya, teaching at several schools including Redeemer, and being a pastor. Along the journey, his wife and him have raised 5 children and are now enjoying being grandparents.

Research Interests

Both Genesis 1 and the Standard Physics Theory of Cosmology agree that light was an important feature of our early universe, and Psalm 19 refers to the knowledge revealed by light. Our research lab used  Laser light as a tool to investigate breaking apart of molecules, collisions with a rotating molecule, and high energy combustion reactions. Applications are to atmospheric and combustion chemistry, and to theory of the spatial aspects of velocities and angular momenta in gas-phase reactions.
