Dr. Justin Hoffmeier joined Florida Poly in 2022 as an associate professor in the
Applied Mathematics Department. His published work and invited presentations include
results on homological properties of commutative local rings and exact zero-divisor
graphs, as well as mathematical pedagogy. More recently, he has pursued the application
of topological data analysis to a variety of disciplines.
Prior to Florida Poly, Hoffmeier worked at Northwest Missouri State University as
a tenured associate professor, where he taught a variety of mathematics courses and
served in several leadership positions across the university.
He and his family are very excited to be a part of the Florida Poly team.
