General Field: Signal Processing

Case Summary:

Peer review is considered “the only widely accepted method for research validation,” with publishers relying on the peer review process “to uphold the quality and validity of individual articles and the journals that publish them”. So when a client with 80 peer reviews under his belt approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him file an EB-1A petition, we knew we had a solid case at hand. Given the specifications of USCIS for EB-1A cases his consistent peer review experience served as evidence of his authority in the field. However, we did not shy away from further looking into his credentials to build our petition packet. We were able to find details of his publishing record and citation counts too.

  • His publications have been cited by researchers in at least 40 countries according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of signal processing
  • Due to its great applicability in the field, his research in signal processing has been cited 863 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar. This places our client in the top 1% of most highly cited authors publishing on topics in Computer Science over the past 10 years according to Microsoft Academic.
  • He has an extensively documented record of authorship in his field of endeavor. As evidence of this research success, his work has resulted in 26 peer-reviewed scientific articles – a productive and exemplary record compared to that of his peers in the mutual field of research. These publications are in some of the most prestigious, high-impact journals and conferences in his field.
  • Acting on our advice, the client also gathered advisory opinions from dependent and independent experts in the field. Two of the independent experts had the following to say about him:

“[The client’s] research also holds significant value to the United States. To underline one particular application, image and video processing are especially important for national security. With the rise of surveillance cameras, there has been a vast increase in video data, especially in areas of key importance to national security, such as airports. As discussed above, [the client] has made great strides in developing machine learning techniques to separate the background and foreground of video data. For this reason, his work is especially useful for analyzing vast quantities of video data, and thus it is invaluable to United States national security.”

“[The client] has provided novel deep learning methods that reduce the dependency on experts and the time required to evaluate diagnostic data. His research thus contributes to increasing the speed and accuracy of diagnoses and the evaluation of patient prognosis. It is clear that[the client’s] research is of great value to the international struggle against cancer.”

Thus, it was apparent that his work was of considerate value to the United States. We were thus very happy to know when the adjudicating judge gave a positive response in his favor in a very short period of 6 days. This was made possible by the premium processing that he opted for. We are happy to wish him the very best in all of his future endeavors.
