About Me

Hello! I'm Rushabh Mehta, a graduate of the University of Chicago, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. I'm the co-founder of Pontus, the privacy first AI platform. Before starting Pontus, I worked for the startup Gordian Software and Metron, Inc under Dr. Jeffrey Silver on stochastic decision problems and inference.

I'm deeply interested in feedback mechanisms and other dynamic approaches to modeling large systems. Through my work consulting for the Bureau of Economic Analysis, I build human-in-the-loop approximation models for data reports, and implemented differential privacy measures in databases at scale.

I also just enjoy learning mathematics for fun! I just finished a study of Kreyszig's Introductory Functional Analysis and am currently working on studying Algebraic Geometry. I'm also an active member of the Art of Problem Solving community and math.stackexchange.

Outside of academics, I enjoy playing all kinds of sports (especially tennis and ping-pong) and chess, and love cooking!

Here's a sneak peak of what you might expect from this site:


On this site, you'll find notes on subjects I've been studying, with accompanying proofs, explanations, and solutions to ideas, theorems, and problems that are challenging.


You'll also find resources that I've found useful in doing math, including computational engines for mathematics and writing software.
