Hi, I am Dr. Santosh Kumar, currently working as Associate Professor (Senior Scale) in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Manipal University Jaipur.
I have done B.E. (Computer Science and Engineering), MTech (Computer Science and Engineering) from Rajiv Gandhi Technical University, Bhopal, and Ph.D. (Computer Science and Engineering), from Sir Padampat Singhania University, Udaipur (JK Cement Nimbahera Foundation). I have experience of 19 years in the teaching and research domain in prestigious institutes and universities.
I have worked in various administrative capacities such as Director (Quality & Compliance), Director (Research) Coordinator & Chairman for different Academic Committees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Currently, my responsibilities include the coordinator for NBA, Departmental BoS, Program Assessment Committee (PAC), and Academics committee coordinator.
I have driven various accreditation programs at UG & PG levels. I have a special interest in the implementation of education technology. I have worked on defining aims, and objectives, outlining course contents, method of teaching, and assessment. I promote the use of education technology that covers a great understanding of learning and differences between individuals. As a teacher, I have enjoyed working in various fields and deriving satisfaction from contributing to society through education technology. I have also played a significant role to mentor new teachers.
My research area includes education technology, predictive analysis, trend detection, regression, classification, and clustering algorithms in data mining and text mining. I have implemented various information retrieval models and have a key interest in term pre-processing methods, term weighting, term pruning strategy, and related areas.
Teaching is my passion. As a teacher, I am enjoying working in all the above fields and derive satisfaction from contributing to society through education technology. I adopt teaching methods that includes lecturing, small group interaction, lab work, e-learning, and audio-visual help with eLearning possibility, challenges for teachers are more for interfacing and interacting constructively with students. Promoting the PG Students for research and academic writing is an integral part of my teaching.
I wish to be simple, honest, natural, frank, clean & fit in mind and body. I wish to live without hate, jealousy, envy, or fear. Ready to say I don’t know, if so, it be. Ready to say I will not be able to present or available if it is so. To meet all people on absolute equality and remember as the humblest person. To that end, I pray that I may never meddle, dictate, interfere, or give advice that is not wanted, nor assist when my services are not needed.
I desire to Radiate Life. I am interested in richness, ~, yoga-nidra, spirituality, travel, public speaking, and God. I can do my best whenever I am focused. I do not engage in confrontations with anyone. This is a waste of time and energy. If I have caused harm, I apologize and fix the situation. However, if someone simply doesn’t like something I have done or something that I do or disagrees with me, that is fine, but I’m not going to get into an argument about it. For any confrontation-like situation, I simply take a deep breath, relax, breathe out, and re-focus my efforts back on my work and goals.
I will not be a person I don’t want to be. I will not be petty, jealous, envious, or give in to any other of those lazy emotions. I will not gossip or speak badly of others, no matter who I am with or what environment I am in. I will not be negative when it is easier to be positive. I will not hurt others when it is possible to help. I will know the temptations, situations, and environments in life that I must avoid, and I will, in fact, avoid them, even if it means loosening relationships with others who “live” in those environments. It’s my life and that matters more than what other people think of me.
I am guided by these two phrases- Nothing matters I mean that arguing changes nothing, I can only work towards the major, massive goals that I have set for my life…that I have a vision of helping others, and there is no time to let petty arguments stand in the way. It will all be over soon This serves me in both good times and in bad. In hard times, such as bad days, troubled times, or intense physical effort or discomfort, I know that it will all be over soon.
A small amount of suffering now will be forgotten later when I will enjoy the rewards of my work. And in good times, I will remember that life is short, and I must make things count now, and no matter how good things are going I must never let myself become soft and lazy because I have too much to accomplish in such a short time.
I am fitness-focused, a distance runner, and run marathons including the Jaipur AU Bank Marathon in 2022
I desire to Radiate Life and decided that I will continue helping people. I will always keep the child within me alive. I will laugh every day. Everything that happens to me – good and bad – is my personal responsibility. I blame only myself. These are the choices I’ve made – this is the life I’m living. I will accept the consequences of my actions. Things happen sure but slowly and steadily. Not at once. I felt a responsibility towards myself and committed to myself that I will be a person whose presence will make people feel love and happiness.
