Case Summary:

Our client is an electrical engineering specialist who aspires to improve biosensors and wearable technology for biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications by incorporating machine learning into electrochemical sensors and biomedical microelectromechanical systems devices. The significance of the study she is conducting to back her proposed endeavor lies in its emphasis on improving agricultural and environmental applications. As a result, our team at North American Immigration Law Group consented to handle her case and countersigned the
client-attorney contract for an EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) petition.

The NIW requires more than a conventional EB-2 petition because of the higher evidentiary standard that the petitioner must meet. Therefore, our objective was to present all the pertinent data that establishes our client’s admission to the United States for permanent residency would be in the national interest.

  • We began with highlighting that our client is a holder of an M.S. degree in electrical engineering.
  • She had published 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), 11 peerreviewed conference articles (5 of them first-authored), and 2 first-authored abstracts in no fewer than 2 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, altogether accumulating 60 citations.
  • Besides, her experience and proficiency in her chosen field have earned her many invitations to serve as peer reviewers for reputable journals and papers. To date, she has finished at least 6 reviews. It is evident that she is regarded as extremely competent in the field and an expert in the field pertaining to her proposed endeavor given that only the most highly recognized scholars in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in prestigious venues like these.
  • Her study has also been funded by NSF; NASA; and Venturewell. Thus, this funding serves as apparent evidence of the merit of our client’s work in the improved safety of miners and the improved health outcomes of physiotherapy patients.

We are happy to announce that our team has successfully convinced USCIS that our client possesses exceptional expertise in the field of electrical engineering. Additionally, her proposed endeavor has applications in the advancement of advanced and networked sensing and signature management, health-sector sensing, and environmental-sector sensing, which are formally recognized as critical and emerging technologies. As her continued work is vital to achieving and preserving the United States’ technological leadership, we are pleased to affirm that her NIW approval was approved just seven days after we submitted her petition to the USCIS. We appreciate that she chose our law firm for her I-140 application, and we congratulate her on her notable accomplishment and successful completion of this process.
