Dr. Sengers is married to Dr. Jan Vincent Sengers with whom she
They have have four children.
Dr. Sengers was born and educated in Amsterdam. She wrote " A
an immigrant to the United State
I have found at the national Bureau of Standards [ now NIST ]
a work environment where I felt
welcome and accepted, where even in the 1960's women scientists had
successful careers, where
special arrangments were made for me while I was raising my family,
and where I was given
all support to succeed."
- Dr. Sengers
took an interest in the practical applications of critical point properties.
