Arkady Serikov was born in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, in 1973. He received the Dipl.- Phys. degree (1996) and the Dr.-Ing. degree (1999) in nuclear physics and engineering from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (Technical University), MEPhI, Moscow, Russia at its Department of Theoretical and Experimental Physics of Nuclear Reactors. His Ph.D. dissertation was devoted to the neutron activation of fusion reactor materials and fusion waste management, for that a software interface was developed coupling of neutron and decay gamma transport with activation analyses. In 1999, he joined the Russian Research Center "Kurchatov Institute," Moscow, Russia, where he did computational neutronic analyses for the ITER and DEMO RF fusion reactors. Since 2004, he has continued his work as Scientific Staff Member at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), formerly Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (FZK), Institute for Neutron Physics and Reactor Technology (INR) in Karlsruhe, Germany. At KIT, he has been working as a responsible person for conducting the computational neutronic support for the development of the ITER upper ECH launcher. In his neutronic practice, he is performing neutron and gamma transport calculations with the MCNP Monte-Carlo computer code and activation analysis with the FISPACT code.
