Claudia Scarlata has made significant contributions to the understanding of the sources responsible for the reionization, the last major transformation of the Universe, only a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. Her work uses state of the art observing facilities to shed light on the physical processes regulating the growth of galaxies over cosmic time.
