Serov was born 04.11.1952, Pavlovo, Gor'kovskii region, USSR. He got his Master Degree (1975) in Applied Mathematics from Lomonosov Moscow State University, PhD from the same University in 1979. Serov's main scientific interests are oriented toward the spectral theory of elliptic differential operators with singular coefficients and its applications to inverse scattering and inverse spectral problems for such operators as well as the nonlinear equations with applications in optics and electromagnetics. His most important results include the solution of inverse eigenvalue problems for Sturm-Liouville operator with singular coefficients in 1994 (with L. Zhornitskaya), the solution of back-scattering problem in two dimensions in 2001 (together with P. Ola and L. Päivärinta), multidimensional Borg-Levinson theorem for singular potentials in 2002 (together with L. Päivärinta) and the uniqueness results and reconstruction of singularities in two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger operator with singular coefficients in 2007-2012.
