Pulse Research Fellowship Alumni

The Internet Society Pulse Research Fellowship was established in 2023 to support researchers in conducting data-driven analysis or developing tools that contribute to an open, globally connected, secure, and trustworthy Internet.

2024 Pulse Research Fellows

The 2024 cohort application process launched in November 2023, and we received 157 applications from 49 countries, from which 14 were selected to provide a detailed project proposal. Due to the high quality of project proposals, we chose the following four fellows for the 2024 fellowship: 

  • Jan Marius Evang: Enhancing National Internet Resilience: Balancing Openness and Security
  • Yasir Haq: Measuring the Resilience of the DNS Ecosystem
  • James Madeley: LocalViz: Measuring and Visualizing Internet Traffic Locality
  • Mike Vandersanden: Digital Vigilance: Identifying Network Interference by Developing a Holistic System
