Bio: Mahala Nyberg graduated from the State University of New York at Potsdam in 2018 with Bachelor’s degrees in History and Archaeological Studies and minors in Museum Studies and Anthropology. As part of the Presidential Scholars Program at SUNY Potsdam, Nyberg completed a two-year research endeavor conducting oral history interviews with a World War II veteran that culminated in a museum exhibit about his life and experiences at the Onondaga Historical Society. Her current research, as part of the Digital Humanities Certificate program at Northeastern University, analyzes conservation history in the Adirondack State Park and placing the experiences and voices of conservators on a digital map can illustrate how those individuals influenced that landscape. Upon graduation, Nyberg hopes to work at a museum or historical institution in management or public programming.
