Arkady Ellern was born and raised in Moscow USSR , studied chemistry at Mendeleev Moscow Institute of Chemical Technology (graduated with honors) and received his PhD studies at the Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the USSR Academy of Sciences in Inorganic Chemistry. In 1990-th he worked  at Chemistry Department of Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel.  For last 10 years he is working at Iowa State University as Associate Scientist and Staff Crystallographer . The detailed information on current research projects and areas of scientific interests research can be found in here.

As a Chemist and  X-ray Crystallographer he authored and coauthored more than 400 papers and review articles, mostly on synthesis, sophisticated crystal growth and X-ray Structure Determination of wide variety of extremely unstable and aggressive substances under low temperatures and high pressures including in situ  crystallization. He determined structures of halogen fluorides oxifluorides and their derivatives as well as a range of xenon and bromine derivatives with coordination number exceed 6.  His recent research interest is focused on crystal polymorphism, chemistry and structure of huge MOP clusters with unique magnetic properties and precise X-ray structure determination of extremely aggressive compounds .

Arkady Ellern  was awarded with prestigious Humboldt Fellowship in 1991 and he successfully spent a 16 months  in Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, Berlin Free University, Lab of Professor Dr. Konrad Seppelt  in 1994 and 5 months in 1999.
