I think that it is not possible, but in the Query Editor you can choose whether field should start/end/contain/not contain given string. If you use some proper configuration of OR/AND conditions in the query then you should be able to simulate basic regular expressions.

Thank you for the reply, I am looking for the ability to query using

regular expressions like or \d\w. I just created Enhancement
