One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Adam Hammett



Dr. Hammett taught at the college level for seven years before coming to Cedarville in 2015. His area of expertise is combinatorial probability, which typically involves analyzing a randomly selected element from a large, finite collection of similarly constructed objects. He maintains an active research program and has supervised numerous undergraduate research projects. These projects usually involve a combination of theoretical mathematics and computer programming. Dr. Hammett also maintains connections to organizations espousing free-market economics. He is an active member of the American Enterprise Institute’s network of Christian scholars, Values & Capitalism.
