Rachel Ignotofsky is the New York Times-bestselling author and illustrator of "Women in Science," "Women in Sports," and most recently, "The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth." Drawing on her graphic design background, she creates playful illustrations and infographics that educate, entertain, and shed light on science, art, and the environment. In her engaging talks and presentations, she demonstrates how combining art and science can make even the most intimidating subjects approachable. A strong advocate for women in STEM fields, Ignotofsky also explains how representation and narratives can empower young women to follow their passions.
