Case Summary:

The outstanding researcher category is a subdivision of the Extraordinary Ability criteria set by the USCIS for petitioners who claim to have done extraordinary research work in their field. As can be understood by anyone, the category is not just very tough to compete in due to these guidelines but also very competitive. The strict selection criteria call for a solid petition and this is where NAILG comes into the picture. We help our clients by building their case for them and helping them win approval. This is exactly what we did for a client from China with a Ph.D. in computer science and engineering. He was working as a research scientist in the field of computer science when he came to us seeking help with his EB1-B (Outstanding Researcher) application.

We immediately moved our team to aid him in understanding the process before digging into his academic and professional records. This we did so that he knew the process before signing the retainer contract. Our next step after the initial background check was to use the information from his CV and transcripts to put together an impressive petition package.

In this package was included information on his publication count and citation records along with his review experience. We also used funding information and letters of recommendation from experts to corroborate these facts.

Our team had found that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to improve the image and video quality in order to advance the study of human perception, computer vision, and deep learning. As evidence of this research success, his work has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Moreover, this work has been cited 529 times in other peer-reviewed articles according to Google Scholar. In fact, these citations come from researchers both in the United States and from around the world. These researchers hail from major prestigious and widespread institutes throughout the world. He is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals and conferences, that is he has already conducted at least 18 reviews.

On the other hand, his work has received funding from the NSF. This funding supports projects that promote the economic, national security, and scientific leadership goals of the U.S. Overall, it became clear that his research has had a lasting and positive impression on computer science and comprises a crucial advancement in the overall understanding of deep learning.

Two of the 3 independent recommenders stated the following:

“[The client’s] history of top-tier computer science studies and robust impact on the field distinguish him as a premier researcher and an incredibly valuable asset to the United States. The nation is therefore well-served by ensuring his unabated employment and research contributions.”

“Based on his impressive research, citation, and peer review records, it is clear that [the client] is among the top echelons of researchers in the computer science field. Therefore, he will undoubtedly continue to positively impact his field and the United States as a whole through his sustained work.”

This was a clear indication of the value of the work that our client was conducting. And it also helped us prove how important it was for the United States to let this work continue here. It was thus not surprising that his case got an approval nod from the authorities. We are proud and happy of having helped him in this process.
