The Euclid STAR Prize is given to members of the Euclid Consortium for their exceptional contribution to the collaboration over the past year. Sophie has received her prize for leading and completing the first Key Project of the Euclid Primordial Universe Science Working Group, in which she studies the ability to effectively select z>6 galaxies in the Euclid Deep Fields. Sophie's work provides one of the first quantitative analyses of the power of Euclid data, as well as need of ancillary data such as LSST's, for the study of galaxies towards the epoch of reionisation.
