Huge congratulations to MOMENT Lab alum Udit Paul for receiving the 2024 ACM SIGCOMM Doctoral Dissertation Award for his dissertation titled "Towards Bridging the Divide: Enhancing Understanding of Digital Equity".  His thesis and supporting publications made fundamental contributions to addressing Internet access inequality, providing policymakers with desperately needed information about broadband access, affordability and performance across the U.S. This award acknowledges the originality, rigor, and impact of a dissertation in the field of communications and networking. Dr. Paul was co-advised at UCSB by myself and Prof. Arpit Gupta.
