Mr Regis X

Head of the department
Having delved deeper into Numerical Analysis and Data Driven Science, Mr Regis X has developed a strong temperamental proclivity towards  Sparse Regression of Galerkin’s Weighted Residual Method. He believes a professor doesn’t have to conform to some prepackaged  version of teaching but rather, he/she should aspire to get across the concepts in an innovative manner and with exceptional grace. Driven by Ignatian Pedagogy, he wants students to have galactic explosiveness not only intellectually but also in their heart.
