Environmental Data Analysis and Modeling

May 2014

He's a professor who is poor in giving lectures though he seems to be nice. All things from this class were learnt by myself, so did my classmates. And always there were about half of students present in the classroom. The comparatively slight homework is the only reason you should take this class. He may have good research and papers, but I think he should review his way of teaching and take some changes. Otherwise, he is definitely the worst professor in teaching I've met at Columbia.

I've had my fair share of poor professors, but Yegulalp is definitely one of the worst I've ever had here at Columbia. His lectures are not only dull, boring, and uninspiring, but he mumbles to himself, expects everyone to know exactly what he's talking about, and has a rather superior attitude as well. I am taking Environmental Data Analysis and his labs are literally him doing a trial and error run of R coding on the spot. He makes a million mistakes, just basically talks to himself as he codes, and never asks anyone how we are doing. Definitely one of the most uninspired, downright awful professors at Columbia.
