Client’s Testimonial:

“A big thank you for your diligence and responsiveness during the entire preparation! And thank you for the timely update.”

On January 24th, 2023, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Ph.D. Student in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Ph.D. Student

Country of Origin: China

Approval Notice Date: January 24th, 2023

Processing Time: 11 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our client, a Ph.D. student, has made original contributions of major significance to the field of computer science. His artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational biology research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including environmental pollution and human disease. He is particularly well-known for his contributions to the generation of environmental models of atmospheric pollutant concentrations with machine learning techniques. Thereby, published 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals and conference proceedings in his field. Not only has he successfully published the results of his research in the field, but also influenced his peers. That is, his publications have been cited by researchers 799 times in at least 43 countries.

Impressed by the quality and the number of our client’s merits, we agreed to help him achieve the Alien of Extraordinary Ability (EB-1A) criteria of the non-immigrant visa, which is reserved for non-Americans who can prove their work is extraordinary through recognition received from nationally or internationally. Therefore, when a leading artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational biology expert in computer science approached us to file his EB1-A application, we assured him to conduct a thorough evaluation of his credentials to prove that his work is indeed invaluable in the United States.

Firstly, we highlighted that his work involves investigating the underlying theories and methodologies relating to machine learning, and developing novel algorithms for solving problems in drug discovery, quantum chemistry, and gene sequencing, concluding that his unique and expansive expertise has enabled him to contribute significantly to the field of computer science. The importance of his background and accomplishments in his area of expertise is discussed further in letters of support from fellow experts in the field. We included four recommendation letters in his EB1A petition packet. One of them has been stated below: –

“[Client’s] work has aided researchers in healthcare, bioinformatics, environmental science, and many other areas, thereby demonstrating a level of versatility that is rare among even the most experienced computer science experts. This versatility confirms his position in the upper ranks of his field. Based on his success to date, I am certain that his continued research will bring further advantages to the computer science community in the United States and abroad.”

In addition to substantive evidence satisfying the requirements for this immigration classification, we also added his active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field. He has conducted at least 46 reviews, and his repeated participation in peer review further affirms his elevated standing in the computer science field, as judging the quality and accuracy of submissions requires an unusually high level of expertise.

Overall, his influential research, in conjunction with his notable education and versatile skill set, positions him among the foremost computer science experts operating today. It is thus evident that our client is a non-American national with extraordinary ability in the field of his expertise, asserting the necessity of his continued research in the United States.

Thus, the adjudicating authorities at USCIS approved his case in just 11 days with no RFE issuance, which is a great achievement. We sincerely thank our team and our client for all the efforts put into this petition and for accomplishing another win for the client as well as for our prestigious North America Immigration Law Group.
