Ellen Robin Rubinstein has a wide range of interests, which she attempts to pursue. Following her passion for reading and writing, she graduated from Cornell University with a degree in English Literature. Science drew her strongly as well, and she went on to obtain a degree in Chemistry from the University of California at Santa Cruz, then a doctorate in Materials Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She has participated in a variety of research projects, working in both academic and industrial settings.
Music has also afforded her great enjoyment, always; she sings in a chorus and plays the flute. She also delights in taking long walks in the wooded area of New Jersey where she now resides with her family.
