Welcome to the personal website of Yogesh Goyal! I am an engineer with drive and passion for studying life-ly things.
I grew up in Chopra bazaar, a small settlement in the Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir in India, very close to nature. I did most of my schooling in Udhampur, at the Army Public School. I attended Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar for my undergraduate education (2008-12) where I studied Chemical Engineering. I joined Princeton University as a graduate student (2012-2017) where I was co-advised by Stanislav Shvartsman and Trudi Schüpbach. At Princeton, I was affiliated with the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. I just started my postdoc (November 2017) with Arjun Raj at the University of Pennsylvania. Here’s my CV.
I am broadly interested in questions of quantitative biology: for details, check out the Science page.
