Client’s Testimonial:

“It has been great working with the lawyers and staff from NAILG. They made the application process much easier to navigate and have helped me tremendously with gathering and preparing various materials for the final filing. They are very efficient and responsive. I have already recommended them to several of my co-workers.”

On March 19th, 2020, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Data Scientist in the Field of Computer Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Data Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: March 19th, 2020

Processing Time: 10 months, 27 days

Case Summary:

A data scientist from China in the field of computer engineering contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her file her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We evaluated her credentials and were assured that her notable career achievements qualified her for an EB-1A petition.

As part of our services, we analyzed our client’s profile to narrow down some of her key accomplishments in the field of computer engineering, namely, that her original research ideas have fostered innovation on the development of computer algorithms for analyzing biomedical images. We also showcased how her research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding and implementing improved designs for computer vision systems used in medical diagnostics.

Additional evidence:

Other integral evidence that we incorporated into our client’s EB-1A petition dossier included the 137 citations gathered from the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles and 14 peer-reviewed conference papers that she had authored at the time of filing. These numbers proved to the USCIS that our client’s scientific output reflects the way she has been driving progress in the field of computer engineering. Additionally, her petition also noted the 15 times she had acted as a peer reviewer on behalf of various scientific journals.

To further support her EB-1A petition, our client collected six recommendation letters from other influential experts working in the field. These experts advocated for our client’s distinguished achievements and leadership role among the best in the industry. According to one of them: “Considering that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States according to the CDC, advancing methods for detecting the levels of calcification in arteries is clearly relevant to the interests of the American healthcare system. [Client’s] consistent performance of research valuable for healthcare applications has made her an irreplaceable researcher in computer engineering.”

We have no doubt that our clear and precise presentation of our client’s achievements as well as our expert guidance played a role in case approval. Her case was approved in 10 months and 27 days by USCIS without an issuance of RFE (Request For Evidence). We congratulate our client on this EB-1A petition success, and we wish her the very best as her work in the field of computer engineering continues to benefit millions within and outside the US.
