Xunming was named the recipient of one of the Regents’ Creative Activities Awards, along with Claudia Keelan of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

This award, established in 1993 by the Regents, recognizes significant accomplishments which bring recognition, as well as national and international stature, to the Nevada System of Higher Education. The honoree receives a $5,000 stipend and a medal.

Xunming has been a professor of mathematics at Great Basin College since 2003. He holds a master’s degree in medical statistics from Tongji Medical University, China and a master’s degree in mathematics from Ohio University.

Prior to coming to GBC, Xunming taught medical statistics and other mathematics courses to undergraduate and graduate students in China and Ohio. His publications include “A Note of Wavelet Variance,” published in 2008 and “Communications in Statistics – Theory and Methods.”

His creative labor of love has been his electronic textbook for pre-calculus. The text allows students to interact with embedded graphs, tables and videos to enhance the learning process.
