Game collaborator: Irene Schensted


Irene Verona Schensted was born in Brooklyn, New York, but grew up in the Boston area. She attended Radcliffe College, where her love affair with mathematical physics began. It led to a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Michigan and a career in research and teaching math and physics.

She also loves reading, walking, and the company of family and friends, and enjoys playing games, especially the series invented by Craige Schensted and Charles Titus, which include Kaliko and Mudcrack Y. She remembers fondly her attendance at the birth and development of these great games.

A long-time resident of Peaks island, Maine, Irene now lives in Miami, Florida, and is writing a book on math-physics with two mathematician collaborators.

Irene is an enthusiastic advocate of public transportation. Her latest book is Daytrips from Boston by Public Transportation, the first volume of a series entitled Savoring New England Car-Free. Her other books include A Course on the Application of Group Theory to Quantum Mechanics and a translation from the Russian of A. S. Davydov's Quantum Mechanics. She and her former husband, Craige Schensted, founded the NEO Press, a small company devoted to publishing books and games.
