Women in Science - Rachel Ignotofsky

January 18, 2017

Rachel Ignotofsky's new book Women in Science highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) from Hypatia in ancient Alexandria to modern day science like the discovery of the Higgs Boson by the team led by Sau Lan Wu.

Rachel is an illustrator, designer and author with a passion for science fiction, comics and fantasy as well as science and history.

Andrew caught up with Rachel and they talked about Rachel's work, inspiration and some of the amazing women featured in the Women in Science book.
