Serfaty earned her doctorate from Paris-Sud 11 University in 1999, under supervision of Fabrice Bethuel. She then held a teaching position (agrégé préparateur) at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. Since 2007 she holds a professorship at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of NYU.
Her research has largely concerned quantum vortexes in the Ginzburg–Landau theory. In 2007 she published a book on this subject with Étienne Sandier, Vortices in the Magnetic Ginzburg-Landau Model .
