A professor of mathematics and statistics, Kuhl joined UWF as a faculty member in 2005 and has served as interim dean of the college since April 2018.

“We welcome this comfortable leadership transition for the Hal Marcus of College of Science and Engineering with confidence,” Ellenberg said. “Jaromy has already proven himself exceedingly competent in the role, overseeing several crucial initiatives within the college. He has shown us the ways in which his scholarly, personal and leadership abilities can lead the college to new levels of excellence.”

Kuhl credited talented and hard-working faculty and staff for the college’s success during his tenure as interim dean. Under his leadership, the college added five new graduate degree programs and an additional degree offering at UWF’s Emerald Coast Campus. The college also welcomed a historical partnership with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, fostered a nationally successful cybersecurity program and bolstered existing programs with new resources and equipment.

“The University of West Florida offers a uniquely personalized yet broad array of opportunities for students and faculty members to grow in their academic pursuits,” Kuhl said. “As dean, I hope to continue inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals who will transform our university, community and world.”

In addition to his role as dean, Kuhl teaches and conducts research that focuses on combinatorics, especially graph theory. He studies Latin squares and bipartite graphs; coloring graphs; extremal problems; Hamiltonicity, or longest cycles in a graph; and the Tutte polynomial.

Kuhl earned his doctorate in mathematics and graphic theory, a master’s degree in mathematics, and two bachelor’s degrees, one in mathematics and one in physics, from the University of Mississippi.
