Isaac LambertIsaac Lambert '09

Passionate about math since learning differentiation, Isaac graduated from W&L in 2009 with a major in Mathematics. Washington & Lee's excellent faculty provided him both a great liberal arts education and a solid foundation in mathematics. He studied abroad in Hungary, and was propelled to further research and eventually publish a paper. To cap off college, he took a spring term trip to Greece and Turkey.

After W&L, Isaac first worked as a Financial Technical Analyst at an insurance company, and then moved on to work as a data analyst at Apple. Now, Isaac works at, a website that helps users learn difficult subjects through challenging problems. A background in math gives a strong path to the world of data, as one is used to solving difficult problems on an open-ended scale, with those around you sometimes oblivious of what you do.

His advice to students would be to take the opportunity now to explore and travel abroad, and never close any doors when considering the future.
