Hey! 🙋🏾‍♂️ I'm Tanishq. Moonrise is my personal website. I mostly use it as a space to express myself.

I love thinking about rich text editors, extensible programming languages, functional programming, and just expressive, fun, robust interfaces to software.

I recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon University majoring in physics and computer science. At the moment, I'm working with Chet Corcos.

My newest project is Gem, a performant and simple plaintext editor:

I've started to write a blog. I talk mostly about designing new interfaces, making computers better, and my personal life.

🌙 Blog Posts

I also keep a separate table for thoughts: just whims, half-baked ideas, and streams of consciousness.

In my free time, I play basketball and video games, but I also like to work on projects.
