Anyone had any professor or teachers they felt had Aspergers or Autism?

There was one that taught a few classes in the Chemical Engineering department I was at that I'm pretty damn sure was. He always seemed to be afraid of the students, and any surprise or something that was completely off of his way of doing things would throw him off and cause him to freak out a bit. He was a nice guy, even though he always came off like he hated the students.

I've had a very eccentric (and good) professor, but no one where I had strong reason to believe any instance of ASD

You can't really tell without psychiatric diagnosis anyway
