Case Summary:

A director and distinguished research scientist with a Ph.D. in physics approached us to assist him in constructing an I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We commenced assessing the broad scope of his skills and knowledge in the data science field, and we extended the reasonable assumption that he will continue to do so within the United States. The significance of his research experience and achievements is further explored in letters of recommendation from other authorities in the area. Therefore, we countersigned the client-attorney agreement and decided to successfully guide him through the EB1A process.

We aimed to highlight his triumphs in his EB1A petition to be presented to the USCIS for further evaluation of his credentials:

  • Initially, we summarized his research which focused on tree-based gradient-boosting machine learning algorithms for the reduction of memory usage in programs and has already greatly advanced the national interest through streamlining machine learning processes and upgrading machine learning architecture.
  • We further deduced that his research certainly addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including maximizing data analysis for companies like Amazon and eBay, improving access to credit and economic mobility, and expanding our understanding of the universe.
  • Also, we detailed the 326 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published, which altogether amassed 50,749 citations, and this impressive citation total underscores the utmost importance of his work due to its direct applicability in global efforts for governmental security, economic growth, and understanding fundamental properties in the universe.
  • In addition to his groundbreaking research, he actively contributes as a peer reviewer and has judged the work of others 15 times. This significantly enhances the quality and impact of his colleagues’ work. He applies his expertise to evaluate research manuscripts for several prestigious journals and conferences. His substantial involvement in peer review activities highlights his prominent standing in the field and emphasizes his steadfast commitment to advancing impactful research.
  • Furthermore, his study has been funded by both the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy. This funding has supported numerous projects that prioritize the deployment of clean energy technologies, advance national health and welfare, promote scientific progress, and benefit national security. This is a testament to the immense criticality of his research.

To fortify his case further, we included recommendation letters signed by four of his fellow leading researchers in the field and one of them provided the following statement:

“In conclusion, [client’s] work acts as a crucial bridge between diverse fields, seamlessly connecting machine learning, advanced statistics, and groundbreaking research in new physics. Without such an integrated approach, achieving advancements in any single field would be exceedingly challenging. Thus, it is imperative that the United States extend him the necessary support and resources, as the global scientific community relies on his expertise to continue making substantial advancements.”

We are thrilled that within 3 days of our filing his application, our client’s EB1A petition was approved. A special thanks to the USCIS for offering the premium processing service, a paid alternative that enables petitioners to receive an expedited decision.

Thankfully, we were able to persuade the USCIS of our client’s research once more. Because of his significant influence on science, technology, the understanding of the world, and other vital fields, it is critical to secure his knowledge as a priceless asset. We are grateful that our client chose the North America Immigration Law Group and allowed us to play a significant role in his achievement.
