Dr. Goyal received the B.S. degree in mathematics and the B.S.E. degree in electrical engineering (both with highest distinction) from the University of Iowa, where he received the John Briggs Memorial Award for the top undergraduate across all colleges. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, where in 1998, he received the Eliahu Jury Award for outstanding achievement in systems, communications, control, or signal processing.

He was a Research Assistant in the Laboratoire de Communications Audiovisuelles at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1996. He worked in the Mathematics of Communications Research Department of Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies as an intern in 1997 and again as a Member of Technical Staff from 1998 to 2001. From 2001 to 2003 he was a Senior Research Engineer for Digital Fountain, Inc., Fremont, CA. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004, where he was the Esther and Harold E. Edgerton Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering. He was an adviser to 3dim Tech, Inc. (winner of the 2013 MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition Launch Contest Grand Prize), and was subsequently with Nest, an Alphabet company, 2014-2017. He is now with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Boston University.

Dr. Goyal is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, Eta Kappa Nu, IEEE, OSA, SIAM, and AAAS. He was awarded the 2002 IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Magazine Award, the 2014 IEEE Int. Conf. Image Processing Best Paper Award, the 2017 IEEE SPS Best Paper Award, the 2018 IEEE Int. Conf. Computational Photography Best Poster Award, and an NSF CAREER Award. Work he supervised won student best paper awards at the IEEE Data Compression Conf. in 2006 and 2011, the IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing Workshop in 2012, and the IEEE Int. Conf. Image Processing 2018, as well as five MIT thesis awards and one BU thesis award. He served on the IEEE SPS Image and Multiple Dimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (TC), the SPS Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing TC, the Steering Committee of the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery, and as an IEEE SPS Distinguished Lecturer. He current serves on the Editorial Board of Foundations and Trends in Signal Processing. He was a Technical Program Co-chair of the 11th Int. Conf. Sampling Theory and Applications and a Co-chair of the SPIE Wavelets and Sparsity conference series 2006-2016. He is a co-author of Foundations of Signal Processing (Cambridge University Press, 2014).
