Ishan Tarunesh

Second Year Undergraduate, Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay


Hey there ! I am a sophomore student at IIT Bombay pursuing B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering. I am also pursuing a minor in Mathematics. Computer Science fascinates me a lot. From the advent of my undergraduate study I have grown interest in following fields.


  • Functional Programming
  • Programming Languages
  • Competitive Coding
  • Mathematics

I am currently a voluteer for the Web and Coding Club, IIT Bombay where I regularly contribute by helping in organising events for increasing awareness and culture of coding in the institure, writing wiki articles and working on open-source projects

I hail from the city Patna, which is located in Bihar. In my free time, I enjoy reading books especially English and Russian classics. I am also an avid player of Chess and Badminton.

  • Implemented monte carlo search tree method for ultimate tic tac toe
  • Github Repository

World Game

Web and Coding Club
  • Developed a single player version of the famous survival game in Racket(Scheme)
  • Implemented health bar, collectible resources, obstacles, enemies and power-ups
  • Added a gameplay and timer to trigger events in the arena
  • Github Repository

Giphy Bot

Yahoo Hack U
  • Built a chatbot for the competition that replies to the user in form of gifs using python and its web scrapping tools like urllib and BeautifulSoup
  • The bot filters the user message for keywords, queries on the internet for relevant gif and then displays it on an interface
