Cristian Lenart's main interest is in the development of combinatorial models for various areas of algebra and geometry, with the goal of performing concrete computations and understanding concrete spaces with combinatorial precision.

He has been an invited speaker at various national and international conferences, including recent workshops in Kyoto (2008), at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley (2008), and at the Banff International Research Station in Canada (2007).

Lenart's work has been supported by two National Science Foundation grants.

He received a doctorate in mathematics from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom (1996), and a doctorate in computer science from the University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania (1992). He has been a member of UAlbany's Department of Mathematics and Statistics since 1999.
