Undergraduate researchers Ella Weber, Ila Nako, and Blue Carlsson were invited to participate in a two-day conference on November 16-17th hosted by NYU's Department of Social & Cultural Analysis. "Radioactive Landscapes" focused on the impacts of nuclear energy, weapons, and development on Indigenous peoples around the world.

Carlsson and Nako spoke at the morning roundtable, presenting their work on the Navajo uranium miners and Mapping Nuclear Colonialism, respectively.

Her research with Princeton's Program on Science and Global Security (SGS) culminated in the podcast "The Missiles on Our Rez," produced by Scientific American.
